Why play AFL


AFL is Australia’s indigenous and most popular code of football. With a long and proud history dating back to 1857, AFL is played throughout Australia at both junior and senior levels. 

AFL is an emphatically multi-cultural sport, with players participating from countries across the world, as well as a uniquely strong indigenous representation.

AFL requires use of skill sets much wider in scope than other football codes.  If learnt at a junior age, the eye-hand, eye-foot, hand to foot, catching, running and positional skills are very transferable and are indeed highly valued across all other sports.  AFL’s varied nature of roles, play and skills encourage teamwork, sportsmanship and social skills.

All Auskick, Junior and Youth coaches are accredited through the AFL Coaches development programs, ensuring that the safest environment and latest techniques and skills are used to teach, mentor, and develop the players. As the major focus point for all club stakeholders the club places a large investment in keeping our coaches qualified and up to date. The AFL also trains and supplies umpires for each game, with umpires continuing their skill development through appropriate matches and supervision through the different grades of the competition.

Junior Footy is for boys and girls aged 7-12 and is the next step for kids who are ready to move on from NAB AFL Auskick or Auskick Play.  Playing rules and team numbers are modified so children can continue to develop their skills in an enjoyable and safe atmosphere. Junior Footy is the perfect environment for kids to have fun learning through play, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime. Kids are gradually introduced to competitive football in stages as they gain skills and confidence throughout their years of Junior Football participation. It is important that providers of Junior Football and participants alike are familiar with, and adopt, the “this is our game” philosophy. It is this philosophy that ensures participating boys and girls have a fun, safe and positive football experience that is suitable to their need.



Youth Footy is for boys and girls aged 13-18 and is suitable for players of all abilities. An ideal progression from either NAB AFL Auskick or Junior Football, Youth Football provides boys and girls with the opportunity to play in a graded competition suitable to their ability within a local Community Club environment.

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.
