The perfect environment for kids to have fun learning through play, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime
WHAT IS JUNIOR FOOTY?
Junior Football is the next step for kids who are ready to move on from NAB AFL Auskick or other introductory school and/or community programs. It’s the perfect environment for kids to have fun learning through play, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime. Rules of matches are modified so children can continue to develop their skills in an enjoyable, safe atmosphere.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT JUNIOR FOOTBALL
Kids are gradually introduced to competitive football in stages as they gain skills and confidence throughout their years of Junior Football participation. It is important that providers of Junior Football and participants alike are familiar with, and adopt, the "this is our game" philosophy. It is this philosophy that ensures participating boys and girls have a fun, safe and positive football experience that is suitable to their needs.
MODIFIED JUNIOR RULES
Our Junior Footballers aren’t fully grown adults with the same skill level as AFL & AFLW players, so we modify gameplay to suit their needs. From modified tackling to smaller ground size and a smaller ball for junior hands!
JUNIOR FOOTBALL FOR GIRLS
Many girls prefer to play Australian Football in single gender environments, and where possible we recommend girls over age 10 do so. However, should your daughter prefer to play in mixed-gender team or competition they are permitted to do so until age 14.
