"The East Sandringham Junior Football Club is one of the most established sporting clubs in Bayside, originally formed in 1948.
The Club joined the Moorabbin Saints Junior Football League (now SMJFL) in 1991, where it remains. Since that time, it has developed a reputation as one of the best administered and most professional junior clubs in the competition. In 2011, the club was responsible for the creation of the first AFL-sanctioned junior girls football competition in Victoria, fielding four of the 12 teams that competed in the Lightning Premiership, and winning the ultimate prize. In the same year, it fielded its first netball team, winning an Under 17 premiership.
With 25 teams, four of them junior girls sides, and a number of netball teams, it is almost unrecognisable from the early days. Certainly, the Club and its ground have seen many changes since 1948 when facilities at Chisholm Reserve were non-existent There was no water, no toilets and no change rooms, and the oval did not even have a fence around it. If a player overran the boundary he ran the risk of being impaled on the spines of the boxthorn bushes which surrounded the ground.
During this time the club has come up with some fantastic ideas and innovative plans to ensure the strength of the club continues long in to the future.
One of the main areas the club was looking to improve on was the way in which it was currently communicating with its players, members, supporters and sponsors.
With a forward thinking and a dynamic board the club was actively pursuing different methods which would enable them to improve on their existing communication channels.
After conducting a review of all the options available to them the club is pleased to announce the release of their first ever native mobile phone app for the iPhone.
