The Claremont Jets were formed in 1988 and competed as part of an expanding Western Australia Gridiron Football League (WAGFL) from 1989. The club represents the Western Suburbs and the City of Perth, Western Australia.
In 1996, as a result of the WAGFL folding, the Jets joined Gridiron West.
The club focuses on playing and enjoying our football as a team. Win, lose or draw, the Jets will enjoy themselves as only the Jets do, which is another reason why the club has remained so strong for so long.
Admittedly, it is more enjoyable when you win, but this spirit has set the club in good stead with many. The Jets are also one of the most successful WA team in terms of championships won, with the current Championship tally standing at 5. These included 4 in a row for the 92/93, 93/94, 94/95 & 95/96 seasons in the WAGFL.
In 1999, the Claremont Jets were WA State Champions in the newly formed Gridiron West League.
Beyond 2000 saw a consolidation for the Jets, with fewer finals appearances, but with more solid personnel and player base. A series of mid-table performances did nothing to dampen the spirit within the club. Once a Jet always a Jet. Indeed as other clubs came and went, Claremont Jets retained its strong position as the club representing the West of Perth.
2005 was the inaugural season for the Junior Claremont Jets. The first few seasons saw few wins as the team worked towards establishing a solid base. By the 2010s, the Junior Jets became contenders in the Gridiron West junior table, each year seeing a better win to loss ratio than the year before.
The winning years are back! In the 2015 / 2016 season, the juniors made the grand final but lost to Rockingham Vipers.
