Take the Next Step
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 in the early Junior grades 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 through Junior football into Youth football in U15s and U17s. We adopt a philosophy that ensures kids have a fun, safe and positive football experience that is suitable to their needs.
Junior/Youth Football 2022
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.
From the U13 age group Mosman Swans may become a joint venture with Willoughby Wildcats. This is subject to registration numbers.
Age as at 31 December 2023 is used to determine age group eligibility. Children must be registered in the correct age group for their date of birth, i.e. children turning 9 in 2023 will be registered for U9s.
Any exceptional circumstances where a parent wishes a child to play out of their eligible age group should be discussed with the Registrar.
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 some Friday nights. Training is held mid-week in the evenings.
- New Mosman Swans Junior players will be provided with uniforms as part of their registration. There will be a uniform collection day at the start of the season. Alternate arrangements will be made if you are unable to collect on the day.
- Youth and Junior players who are part of a joint venture team with Willoughby will be provided with a Jersey and will need to purchase shirts and socks through the Willoughby Wildcats uniform shop.
- Additional uniform items and accessories can be purchased through our online shop.
