Age 13-18 Boys & Girls Contact
Fun, fast and often skilful, Youth Football is a chance for teens to play football with their friends and establish new friendships, with a distinct focus on team building.
WHAT IS YOUTH FOOTBALL?
Tailor made for players of all abilities, Youth Football caters to teenage boys and girls aged from 13 to 18. An ideal progression from either NAB AFL Auskick or Junior Football, Youth Football provides children with the opportunity to play in a graded competition suitable to their ability within a local Community Club environment.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUTH FOOTBALL
Youth Football is more competitive than Junior Football and adopts the full rules of Australian Rules Football to ensure that players are ready to transition to open age football when they reach the appropriate age.
YOUTH FOOTBALL FOR GIRLS
As girls are unable to play in mixed teams from 14 years of age onwards, female only competitions exist in varying age groups in local Community Leagues. Focussed on fun, fitness & friendship, these competitions are managed by local Leagues and are a fantastic place for young female players to continue to learn the skills of the game in a competitive environment.
Play NINES whether you’re completely new to footy, or a few years in. It's fast and fun, without tackling or bumping.
Anyone aged 13+ can feel welcome on the field, which is smaller than a regulation field to accommodate smaller teams (nine players per side).
