What is Youth Football?

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.

What to Expect at Youth Football

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.

Youth Football for Girls

As girls are unable to play in mixed teams from 12 years of age onwards, female only competitions exist in varying age groups in local Community Leagues. Focussed on fun, fitness & friendship, these competitions are managed by local Leagues and are a fantastic place for young female players to continue to learn the skills of the game in a competitive environment.
