Welcome to the Bulleen Templestowe District Junior Football Club website. The mighty Bullants are the result of a merger between the Bulleen Junior Football Club and the Bulleen Templestowe Junior Football Club in 1990. The Bullants prime objective is to educate junior footballers in all relevant aspects of Aussie Rules Football and Sportsmanship.

The club provides a range of social functions designed for maximum family participation and recognition of the efforts put in by all club members. The club is affiliated with the YJFL which is recognised as one of the strongest junior football leagues in Australia. All our away games are played within a twelve kilometer radius of Bulleen Park.

The Bullants are proud to lay claim to the following VFL/AFL players being involved in our club at some stage in their junior playing days.
