Junior Australian Rules Football - U6 to U11
There are over 10 junior leagues across Queensland that provide opportunities for children and their families to participate every year. We recognize that it is largely an army of volunteers that run these leagues for the love of the game and the enjoyment that it provides their kids.
It is therefore vital that we providers of junior football are familiar with, and adopt, the “this is our game” philosophy to ensure 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.
Junior Match play is designed to slowly introduce boys and girls to the game of AFL Football with structured rules suitably aligned as player ages increase.
