Mt Lawley Inglewood Junior football club has grown over the past 50 years to become one of the largest junior clubs in inner-suburban Perth, with more than 500 players aged 5 to 18.
Founded in 1972 as the Mounties, the Roos is a family-friendly club with a real spirit of community. Our ethos is to provide kids in our local community with the opportunity to learn the skills of AFL, as well as diversity and inclusion, while having fun with their teammates in a safe and welcoming environment. Our role as parents, coaches and volunteers is to educate the kids about the game, the land we play on and different cultures within the game, while guiding them on their journey from children to good citizens in our community.
For 49 years, the Roos were at Moyle Pavilion at Inglewood Oval. In 2022, the Roos moved into brand new facilities at the adjacent Hamer Park in Mt Lawley. Our new, state-of-the-art clubrooms and pavilion – provided by the City of Stirling - are located at the Second Avenue entrance to Hamer Park, just off North St. With ample parking on both sides of the oval, visitors are encouraged to park near Mt Lawley Senior High School in Stancliffe St.
