The North Brunswick Junior Football Club is a family oriented sporting organisation, which plays in the Yarra Junior Football League.
Our home ground is situated at Allard Park, in Donald Street, East Brunswick, four kilometres from the Melbourne CBD.
Sport provides children with the opportunity to develop their motor skills, teamwork, leadership skills and strategic thinking.
At North Brunswick Junior Football Club, we strive to teach our junior footballers these valuable life lessons. Our club is committed to creating an environment where children and teenagers develop their fitness and football skills, whilst participating in a team sport.
In the last three years we have had three players (Jordan Nicolo – 2014 U10; Adam Mucilli – 2015 U13 and Julian De Napoli – 2015 U15) win the YJFL’s highest accolade in their age group and division – the YJFL Best and Fairest award, with many other players also receiving nominations for making it into the final 10 players in their respective divisions.
The programs and strategies implemented at our club are flourishing and we are achieving success, thanks to the dedication of the committee, coaching staff, parents and the local community who all volunteer their time – for the kids.
In 2014, the North Brunswick Junior Football Club was awarded Bronze Level status under the AFL Quality Club Accreditation.
We are also achieving success on the field with Premierships in 2008, 2013 and 2014 and participation in Finals series an annual occurrence by our junior teams. In 2013, our U11 team were the Premiers in the YJFL’s Red Division and in 2014, our current U10 team also became Premiers. Our numbers are also increasing annually; this year, 2015, we have fielded four junior teams, ranging from the Tackers through to U15’s with two of our teams making the finals and our U13 team making the Grand Final.
North Brunswick also runs a very successful Auskick clinic where children can learn the skills of football in an enjoyable and safe environment. Auskick is held at our home ground, Allard Park, every Friday night between 6.00pm – 7.00pm during the football season.
New children are always welcome at any time throughout the season.
Our Mascot harkens back to the 1970s. The colours were formerly green striping on a yellow jumper, but following affiliation in late 2017 they now closely resemble the GWS GIANTS.
The North Brunswick Giants used the same theme song as the Senior Club until late 2017.
With the affiliation with GWS GIANTS, we now sing a variation of their theme song. Our club song lyrics are reproduced below.
Well there’s a big, big sound
From the North of the town
It’s the sound of the mighty Giants
You feel the ground a-shaking
The other teams are quaking
In their boots before the Giants
We take the longest strides
And the highest leap
We’re stronger than the rest
We’re the North Brunswick Giants
We’re the biggest and the best
And we will never surrender
We’ll fight until the end
We’re greater than the rest
