Navarre's under-11.5 team will go head-to-head against Talbot in this weekend's Maryborough and Castlemaine District Football League grand final.
Playing at Maryborough, the junior team will be the last group of players who will get the chance to fly the flag for the green and gold in the 2019 season.
Navarre went up against Talbot in the qualifying final on August 24 and fell short by one point.
Turning their finals campaign around, coach Luke Martin said the players were excited to have a chance to represent the club on such a special occasion.
"All the boys are up and about," he said.
"I think the biggest thing to contain the excitement is to teach the kids respect and what is expected of them.
"It allows them to focus on playing football."
Martin said to make the grand final was a great reward for the players after the hard work they've put in during the season.
"All their skills have improved immensely over the season," he said.
"We do a lot of work at training on both sides of their body.
"I've had some of the group of kids for the past three seasons and it shows they are really starting to come together to play as a group and a team."

Martin said he reminded the players in the week leading up to the grand final how special the occasion was.
"They are a special bunch of kids who play at a special club," he said.
"With the following they have at the games anyone would think there was a senior team playing on the ground.
"Every week I say to the players they need to enjoy it - nothing changes. Finals and grand finals are very special and they need to enjoy it because it doesn't come very often."
In its third year of the under-11.5 competition in the league and Martin said there were already positive outcomes shown from the inclusion of a young competition.
"Joe Peacock was a mentor and coach of mine as a junior footballer," he said.
"He came to me when the competition was introduced and worked with me to get the team up and running.
"I never thought coaching would be as enjoyable as it is coaching the kids.
"The team wouldn't have got going without the support of Joe. He's played a big role in junior development within the club."
Martin said the timing was crucial in the continuation of juniors within the club.
"When the team was formed we were low on numbers in both the under-14 and under-17 sides," he said.
"Player numbers are just starting to flow through from the younger age group through.
"Out of our current side, eight players will be stepping up into the under-14s. It's a great opportunity to grow that homegrown talent which Navarre has had a lot of past success on."
Martin's son, Jacob will pull on his boots for one last time in 2019, a dedicated player for the junior team.
Jacob loves the club so much, during the 2019 book week celebrations dressed up as a footballer from Louise Bibby's second edition of her book, Navarre Football Netball Club, celebrating 100 years.
Ms Bibby decided to add to the first edition of the book after a run of success between 2012-18, after the club's centenary celebrations.
"There has been a lot of work put into the book and I would think it would be one of the most comprehensive history books for a town and club of its size," Ms Bibby said.
"There were a few people who missed out on getting the first edition so I hope they are able to pick up a copy of this one.
"Books are available through the club and also at Stawell Lotto and Books."
