Steelers in the Stingrays! 

The MPJFL would like to congratulate the participants from the region who have been selected in the Dandenong Stingrays Squads for 2023 – Boys and Girls.

The Dandenong Stingrays compete in the Coates Talent League, and provide participants within the South East catchment the opportunity to compete against the top talent around the state.

From a league perspective, it is exciting to see the enormous amount of talent that is progressing through club level, and the MPJFL Development Academy. The large amount of participants progressing through the talent pathway is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and passion shown by the volunteer coaches at clubs within the MPJFL.

Our relationship with the Stingrays is as strong as ever, with Toby Jedwab (Operations Lead), Nick Cox (Male Head Coach) and Josh Moore (Female Head Coach) actively engaged in our development programs, as well as showing a keen interest in helping us develop the coaches within the league.
