Kensington Junior Soccer Club (KJSC) is part of the Kensington Flemington Junior Sports Club.
For more than 130 years, Kensington Flemington Junior Sports Club has worked to bring team sports to the area’s diverse communities.
Kensington Flemington Junior Sports Club’s purpose is to:
- be a community based junior sports club run primarily by parents for the development and enjoyment of young people.
- provide an environment that is safe, friendly and inclusive for all.
- create a culture that seeks to positively develop all player’s self-esteem.
KJSC started in 2008, with junior girls’ soccer that has now grown from two teams to more than 150 girls playing in eleven teams, from under 9s to under 16s. It is one of the fastest growing sports for children in our neighbourhood.
In 2018, boys were added to the club and fielded teams in every age group from u7 to u12. In 2020, boy’s soccer will continue to grow as our existing players move up a grade.
KJSC home ground is at JJ Holland Park.
The synthetic soccer pitch is the main ground and is used for all training.
The area around JJ Holland is currently subject to significant works with the Metro Tunnel project having closed of Childers St until 2025 and the replanting of the second oval (the one near South Kensington Station) being done in 2020.
Parking can be difficult during these works and we encourage people to plan ahead and be patient.
KJSC also plays games at Newmarket Oval which is at the Corner of Smithfield and Racecourse Roads, next to the Flemington and Kensington Bowling Club.
