Play > Juniors

Our Junior program encourages kids to move into competitive play in an encouraging environment.  BNFC usually has at least 2 teams for each age group from U8 to U17, with mixed teams of boys and girls.

Pitch Size: Teams play on half sized pitches for U8, U9, and then move to full sized pitches.

We value equal particpation: Our club prides itself in ensuring that all kids get equal play time regardless of skill or experience.

We value relationships: We encourage kids to invite friends and play with them on the same team to ensure long term relationships are fostered.

Training: Teams train once a week for about 1-1.5 hours on Mon, Tue, Wed, or Thursday later afternoon or evening.  Once you are allocated to a team, the training day/times will be provided.  We try to accommodate players as best as possible.

Saturday Games: Games are played on Saturday mornings starting at 9am.  We play in the VCFA.

Parental Input is required: Parents are highly encouraged to participate by becoming Team Managers, or even Coaches (we will provide training/support), but also to do basic things such as running the lines, preparing the pitch by line marking or putting up nets.  Parents are also expected to help with canteen and cleaning on a roster (generally only once a season).

Blackburn Newhope FC has a great atmosphere and provides encouragement to kids regardless of experience.  We do not run grading or expect kids to have experience to join us

Come along to our registration day, Sunday February 19th 2017, to see what you can expect.
