AFL Youth caters to teenage boys in Years 8 through to Year 12. Their games are
scheduled for Sunday mornings and afternoons, depending on the age group and they
train once or twice a week.
This age group provides boys with the opportunity to play in a graded competition within a
club environment. Fun, fast and skillful, AFL Youth is chance for boys to play football with
their mates and establish new friendships, with a distinct focus on team building
In youth football the full Laws of Australian Football are applied and boys will play the
same brand of football they see being played at the elite level. It is also at this stage that
talented youth players may be identified to participate in the NAB AFL Rising Stars
Program, the pathway for elite teenage footballers with aspirations of joining the AFL.
