The South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL) came into existence in 2012, after the Moorabbin Saints Junior Football League (MSJFL) was renamed in order to better represent the League’s geographical spread and its presence in south-east metropolitan Melbourne.
In 2016, the SMJFL will consist of 26 member clubs, 400+ teams playing Australian Rules football across 52 different divisions. The SMJFL caters for age groups ranging from Under 8s to Under 17s, including three divisions for girls – Under 12, Under 15 and Under 18.
With approximately 9,500 participants involved in the League each weekend, 2016 will be one of the biggest years yet in the history of the SMJFL/MSJFL.
