Ahead of #MonashCommunityRound, the South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL) would like to issue a reminder to all players, parents, coaches, officials and spectators about the importance of Play Fair.

The campaign was first launched at the Season Launch in April and has been gradually rolled out to all 65 venues in the region.

You will have see the posters permanently placed in a prominent position in all club change rooms, both home and away rooms at every venue used regularly by SMJFL member clubs.

It builds primarily on league’s strategic values, Respect, Inclusiveness, Health, Well-being & Fun.


What it means to PLAY, COACH and SUPPORT FAIR:

FUN – Show sportsmanship to help everyone enjoy the game

APPRECIATION – Recognise the worth of others from all religious and cultural background (even if they are different to yours)

INCLUSION – Practice inclusiveness regardless of gender, sexuality, disability, cultural background, socio-economic status or football ability

RESPECT – Treat other’s how you’d like to be treated


The SMJFL is calling on all our members to embody these values. Our game has the power to bring people together and there is no better way to do that than to play FAIR.

Get involved when you see the posters around your club change rooms! Take a picture and upload tagging @SMJFL on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the caption ‘I PLAY/COACH/SUPPORT FAIR’ to be in the running to win a money can’t buy match-day experience with St Kilda FC!
