West Ivanhoe Sporting Club

The West Ivanhoe Sporting Club strongly believe sport can bring people in the local community together who otherwise would never have met. As a community-based club we cater for families from Ivanhoe, West Ivanhoe, Bellfield, Fairfield and surrounding suburbs.

Our Club’s values are to provide our young boy and girl footballers with an opportunity to:

  • have fun;
  • develop their skills;
  • participate in a team sport in an inclusive family-based environment;
  • build a culture of respect towards participants and spectators alike.

From an Australian Football League (AFL) perspective the club runs both Auskick and Junior football programs.

  1. Auskick makes learning to play AFL fun, safe and easy for boys and girls. It is a non contact program and through weekly coaching sessions kids will learn the skills of the game in an exciting, social and safe environment. Ages are 5 through to 12, however most kids choose to move to Junior footy at the age of 7-8 into the Under 9's.
  2. Junior Football consists of Under 10’s, Under 12’s, Under 13's and Under 15’s. There is limited contact, modified rules, and reduced ground size. While many of our players come through the Auskick program, we welcome new players into all age groups.

The Club is known as the West Ivanhoe Roosters, we are based at Seddon Reserve in Ivanhoe and play in the Northern Football Netball League.

Being a community club, we can only operate with a team of dedicated volunteers. As such we welcome and encourage parents and friends to actively participate on the committee, in specific supporting roles and assisting on each game day.

We hope to see you down at the Roosters soon.
