LEAGUE IS READY TO LAUNCH OUR 10TH SEASON WITH 225 TEAMS
Last minute preparations are now fully underway with the completion of a series of grading games held at The British School last weekend and the highly important Coaches Briefing meeting this coming Saturday December 6th at The Kristal Hotel.
2015 will be yet another record season with 225 teams participating from 56 schools. We will be organizing 3 All Girls Divisions in U10, U12 and Open Age totaling 26 teams. We will be playing more games at more venues than ever before as the participation interest rises year on year. Congratulations to everyone who has signed-up and is ready to go!
As you already know, none of this works without the full commitment of the very few committee members who spend endless hours on behalf of all the teams and therefore we need the cooperation and concentration of all the team coaches and players to help make this a success. Please give us your maximum commitment now and every day of the upcoming season..
The League will start the League campaign on Saturday January 10th with a series of matches to mark the tragic loss of Matt Wheeler to the JSFA community following a terrible car accident in May of this year. The Matt Wheeler Memorial Trophy will be commemorated by a series of matches at every age level between last season’s league and cup winners preceded by a minutes silence as a mark of respect to Matt from everyone who knew him. The cooperation and contribution from the participating teams is acknowledged as league ambassadors. Fuller can be found under Bulletin 6 on this site for more details.
Please do not forget to attend the Coaches Briefing Meeting on Saturday. There are changes this year in the Under 10’s, which are reduced to 8 players a ‘side, plus other important rule changes everyone needs to be aware of.
We look forward to seeing you on the 6th.

About 2015 League
The Jakarta Schools Football League was founded in 1995 by a small group of British International School

0811836172 parents with the sole aim to organize and deliver quality
inter-schools Association Football in the Jakarta area to children of all ages. The JSFA (Jakarta Schools Football Association) or ‘Coca-Cola’ League as it has become known due to the continued involvement of Coca-Cola as lead sponsor from that time, has grown from 6 schools and 12 teams in 1995 to what it is today as perhaps one of the largest schools football competitions in the world with 226 teams from 65 schools fielding a total of 3,500 students over 4 playing months between January and April every year.
The 2015 Season will see the League organize and manage close to 1200 matches for students between the ages of 7 to 18 years old operating over 12 different venues, mostly host schools, as detailed in the venues section of this website.
The League is totally non-profit making and raises its operating cash requirements from its major supporting sponsors Coca-Cola and Greenfields Milk, (who support The Greenfields Challenge Cup competition) in which all teams in the various age categories participate plus annual subscription fees. All monies raised by the League is spent on venues, trophies, referees, Gala Day events and media.
The Leagues finances are managed exclusively by the British School Jakarta Foundation which acts as the leagues legal entity within which the JSFA is housed and who control all receipts and payments on the League’s behalf.
FOOTBALL FOR LIFE
The ‘Football for Life’ campaign seeks to deliver an outreach programme to children in need in Jakarta. The League has always coordinated and encouraged charity teams to participate in the competitions targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British School Community Action Service programme and participating Students..
The Football For Life initiative however is an extension of this important role and seeks to embrace a wider cross section of children in need in Jakarta through financial support and the active participation by JSFA members in assisting worthy child related causes. The ‘FFL’ campaign raises independent funds via various fund raising initiatives to enable this to happen.
Full details are available under the ‘FFL’ banner on this site or by contacting any member of the main committee.
The JSFA main committee is always looking for additional members to participate in what is a positive and exciting experience for all concerned. Should you wish to support the objective of the League, please feel free to contact us at any time.
