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.
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.
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.
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.
