John Moriarty Football


Help us enable Aboriginal families and communities to unlock the potential of their children.

John Moriarty Football is a skills mastery program for 6 to 16 year olds that uses football (soccer) for talent and positive change, improving school attendance and achieving resilient, healthier outcomes in Indigenous communities. Over 1,200 children participate in the JMF program every week across communities in Northern Territory, Queensland and New South Wales. Including close to 150 children from Borroloola and Robinson River, two of the most remote communities in Australia. Each year we host Indigenous Football Week.

The JMF Scholarships and Pathways program provides a life-changing pathway for talented young footballers aged 10-18 years old in our grassroots JMF program who show exceptional sporting ability and a desire to work hard at school. The program’s inaugural scholarship holder Shadeene Evans has gone on to sign with W-League’s Sydney FC and was selected as a Young Matilda and named vice-captain.
