Smarter Than Smoking Junior Football League

The Smarter Than Smoking Junior Football League is an amateur football league for under-13 to under-18 players in Western Australia. It is run by Football West, the governing body for football in Western Australia.

The league was founded in 2004 as part of a statewide initiative to reduce smoking rates among young people. The name of the league is a play on words, as it encourages young people to be "smarter than smoking" by choosing to play football instead.
