AFL Youth caters to teenage boys in Years 7 to 12.

It is the ideal progression and continuation from our earlier NAB AFL Auskick and AFL Junior programs.

AFL Youth provides boys with the opportunity to play in a graded competition within a club environment. Fun, fast and skilful, AFL Youth is chance for boys to play football with their mates and establish new friendships, with a distinct focus on team building, club and community.

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.
