The AFL Yarra Ranges is an Australian rules football and netball organization based in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges within Victoria. The organization operates the Yarra Ranges Senior Football league and the Yarra Ranges Junior Football league.

History[edit]

The Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League was formed in 1966, from the amalgamation of the Mountain District Football League and the Yarra Valley Football Association (1907–1954).

South Belgrave transferred to the Eastern Football League for the 2008 season, followed by Silvan for the 2011 season. Thornton-Eildon Football Club went into recess at the start of 2011.

Most of the teams in the league are based in the outer fringes of north-east and east Melbourne. However, the addition in recent years of Thornton-Eildon, Yea and Alexandra from the Kyabram District Football League has seen the league expand into the Goulburn Valley area of central Victoria.

In 2016 following a review the league decided to adopt a new name.

Current Structure[edit]

Clubs field football teams in seniors, reserves and under-18s. Clubs play in a two division structure in both the seniors and reserves, with the club winning the senior flag in division two promoted and the bottom division one senior club relegated each season. Since 2013, the under-18s has been played as a single division. A netball competition was introduced in 2005, with the competition subsequently expanded to cater for A, B and C grades.
