Juniors: U10-U12 Years Old | Girls
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.
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 U12s.
Under 10s are non-graded competitions, with the competition divisionalised on geographic boundaries to minimise travel. Under 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.
Girls Youth teams in U14s and above are part of a joint venture with Willoughby JAFC called the Willoughby Mosman Swans.
Youth Football gradually gets more competitive to ensure once your child is 15 years old they are ready for the full rules of Australian Football as demonstration during AFL and AFL Women’s matches.
Youth Girls competitions are for girls aged 13-18 and are focused on fun, fitness and friendship. Whether you’re playing for the first time or coming back season-after-season, you’ll love this brand of footy.
Games are generally played on Sundays, as well as Friday nights. Training is held mid-week in the evenings.
