Registered participants also get exclusive footy items and opportunities to play during halftime at key AFL and AFLW games.

Local Footy (Ages 7+)

AFL Local Clubs are the backbone of many communities and provide opportunities for Juniors right through to Masters, to participate in football competitions. Local Football caters for kids from the age of 7. Find out how you can experience the fun and camaraderie of Local Footy!

Junior Football is designed for kids aged 7-12, transitioning from NAB AFL Auskick or other beginner programs. It offers a safe, fun environment for skill development and play. Rules are modified for safety and enjoyment, with a focus on learning and camaraderie. The program also introduces competitive elements gradually, ensuring a positive experience. Girls can choose between single-gender or mixed teams up to age 14.

Youth Football caters to teens aged 13-17, offering a competitive environment to hone their skills. Tailored for all abilities, it's a progression from Junior Football, played within local Community Clubs. While adopting full Australian Rules, it ensures readiness for open age footy. Girls have dedicated competitions from age 14, focusing on fun, fitness, and skill development. Additionally, Youth X offers a modified, social footy experience on smaller fields, emphasising safety and enjoyment.

Senior Football caters to players aged 18+ and offers both social and sub-elite levels of play. Emphasising community involvement, it provides opportunities for men and women to enhance fitness, communication, and teamwork. The game is played under full Australian Rules, with varying grades based on team strength. Women's football has seen a surge in interest, leading to many standalone competitions. 

AFL Masters Football is tailored for individuals aged 35 and up, emphasizing "Footy for Fun." It provides mature players a chance to enjoy Australian Rules Football in a safe and organized setting. Clubs operate across Australia, playing fortnightly, typically on Sundays. The focus is on camaraderie, fitness, and enjoyment rather than just winning. Women's Masters AFL, inspired by the AFLW, welcomes women aged 35 and above, offering both local and national playing opportunities.
