ABOUT THE PROJECT
The principal purpose of the Mentone & St Bedes O C Amateur Football Club (St Bedes/Mentone Tigers AFC) is to field teams in every age group from Under 8’s and Auskick through to senior VAFA football. This enables players to progress through age groups in an amateur football environment. In any given season, the Club fields around 20 teams (boys and girls) teams in the SMJFL and 6 senior teams in the VAFA. (1 x Under 19, 2 x Women’s open age & 3 x Men’s open age). With the advancement of women’s football, the club has committed to fielding more teams in each age group in future years, so every week during the winter season, the club provides sporting opportunities for around 700 participants and their families to enjoy. The much needed redevelopment at Mentone Reserve provides new unisex change facilities, a modern social area and office space for the small army of volunteers required to community clubs.
