Juniors: U9-U14 Years Old | Boys
Regular Season Registrations – $250
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 stills and confidence throughout their years of Junior Football participation. We adopt the “this is our game” philosophy, which ensures participating boys and girls have a fun, safe and positive football experience that is suitable to their needs.
We don’t want to put kids in adult environments too early and that includes large grounds, congested play, unnecessary physicality and an over-emphasis on winning when skill development is more important.
Mosman Swans aims to field at least two teams in each age group for boys. Girls may play with boys up until U12s if they prefer.
Boys Youth teams in U15s and above are part of a joint venture with Willoughby JAFC called the Willoughby Mosman Swans.
Age as at 31 December 2020 is used to determine age group eligibility. Children must be a minimum of 7.5 to play Juniors. Children under this age that would like to play AFL should join the Auskick program.
Children can play “up” an age group, but are not eligible to play “down”. Any exceptional circumstances that require a child to play down an age group should be discussed with the Registrar. Please select the right age group for your child when registering based on their age in 2020.
Under 9s and 10s are non-graded competitions, with the competition divisionalised on geographic boundaries to minimise travel. Under 9s and 10s are non-competitive, with no results posted, ladders kept or finals held. In Under 11 it moves to a graded structure, with teams divisionalised according to ladder position and ability, rather than geography.
Games are generally played on Sundays, as well as Friday nights. Training is held mid-week in the evenings.
