Shellharbour Junior Football Club
Established in 1967, Shellharbour Junior Football Club (SJFC) is a successful volunteer based organisation that has grown into one of the largest junior football clubs in the Illawarra with approximately 850 registered players.
SJFC has a proud history of being a family club and the support of local businesses and the community has been a vital factor in the clubs success. Continued support ensures that our sport remains affordable for all players and their families.
Our major source of revenue comes from membership fees provided by parents and sponsorships received from generous individuals and businesses. All our Committee members are local residents who are committed to making the Club a success.
Register your child today to join one of the Illawarra's most successful football clubs to make some great new friends and lifelong memories.
If your team is low on players please contact email@example.com We can help you connect with other teams to borrow players or in the worse case if you need to forfeit we can try to organise another team to play so your opponents don't miss out. #sjfcnews
A huge thank you to Steven and Jason Lees for all the time and energy they have put into making sure we can play each week. For weeks these volunteers have hand mowed and whipper snipped the areas around the perimeter of our fields so that the sodden ground has a chance to dry out and that helps our fields stay dry. Last week alone they each spent over 6 hours cutting the grass. If you see Steve down at the grounds please make sure to say thank you. Our club has some amazing volunteers!!
Raisin Toast! Yes Raisin Toast is available today at the canteen!!! Come down and see the lovely canteen volunteers while you are watching the girls play
Grounds remain closed for training this week. Priority is to preserve them for the weekend games. Please respect the fields so that all can play #sjfcnews
Thank you all our spectators for keeping off the field this morning and allowing players to play. Keep up the good work. We are preserving our fields for all players. Our President may not have to sacrifice his left kidney to council to allow us to play
Another unique round of soccer! It was great to see that some of the graded teams got their very first game of the season. We have been very fortunate that our miniroos have been able to play most rounds, thanks to us allowing reverse fixtures, unlike some other clubs whose miniroos haven’t played a game yet due to the wet conditions. Thank you to our volunteers who turned up yet again for the games, some of which didn't even involve SJFC teams. Some of our volunteers are yet to see their own child kick a ball this season. They know after the last two seasons that it isn't just about their child, or their team or even their club but about all players having the opportunity to get on the field and enjoy the sport. We are hoping that this rain stops so that every player in every club gets to play this season
We put the call out for volunteers on Friday night to help on the BBQ and these were some of our fine club members who put their hands up. Due to willingness of our club members to give up their time 12 teams from throughout the Illawarra, none of which were SJFC, got to play last night and we helped to keep the season going for all clubs. We want to say a big thank you for all involved!
Myimbarr fields are still closed to training as they are still soft and wet in some areas As a club our preference is to play on the weekend and we are doing everything possible for the weekend games at Myimbarr to go ahead
