JGFA is proud to host FNQ’s most exciting league, called the ELITE FOOTBALL LEAGUE. The aim of this league is to create opportunities for our advanced players to play in competitive and challenging games with, and against like minded and similarly skilled players. This league helps take their game to the next level with constant feedback from our coaches and a chance for them to mold and develop their ‘football brain’.

​We choose teams to represent JGFA in the following age groups – Under 6/7, Under 8/9, Under 10/11, and Under 12/14.

The chosen players will also have to train with JGFA in their EFL teams at least 1 session per week to be able to participate in Elite Football League (EFL).

*Please note this is just if you want to be a part of the JGFA teams – other clubs/academies can enter EFL under their own names.

​Players chosen for the EFL are given the opportunity to travel with JGFA and enter other tournaments in their teams – travel will be discussed once teams are selected.

After a successful JGFA Gold Coast Tour in 2021 and 2022, we are delighted to announce we will be taking more JGFA representative teams to tour and play in a highly competitive tournament in 2023, with plans to continue this in 2024 and beyond.
