the mighty eagles
Since 1989, the Edgewater Woodvale Junior Football Club (EWJFC) have been kicking goals for their local community. Over the years many champions have started their careers with the Edgewater Woodvale Eagles and then gone on to play both WAFL football and in the AFL.
EWJFC is a band of motivated young players, supportive parents, determined and dedicated professional coaches and volunteers. These wonderful people participate for the passion of the sport and the passion for the footy club. We are a vibrant and passionate community and enjoy a welcoming, family orientated community ‘grass roots’ footy club culture. We pride ourselves on the ethos of fair play, integrity, mateship, and the fun of the game.
Be part of a growing club where new players are always made to feel welcome. Our home ground is at Emerald Park, where we are able to offer our players great facilities.
We thank our major sponsors for their support in 2020
Junior development is one of our key priorities at EWJFC as they are the future of our Club and will ensure our long term viability and success. We are proud that some of our players have gone on to play at WAFL and AFL level. We give our players the opportunity to flourish and nurture their talents.
