The South Melbourne Football Club (SMFC) is dedicated to the development of football skills, encouraging good sportsmanship, physical fitness, positive team play, and the enjoyment of the game according to FIFA rules.

SMFC plays a lead role in encouraging its next generation of elite football players in Victoria by providing opportunities for talented senior and junior players to compete at the highest level, including in national and international youth tournaments.

We have a proud track record in developing junior players and recognise the importance of our juniors to the ongoing success of the club.

In 2020 we will launch our SMFC Academy that will be playing a major part of our football development structure & elite programs. The individualised high-performance training will help us achieve the goal of producing high quality senior players.
