Youth Girls

Youth Girls competitions are for girls aged 13 to 18 of all abilities and aspirations. Youth Girls Football gives players the opportunity to play in a graded competition for girls within a club environment. Youth Girls Football gradually gets more competitive to ensure your child is ready for the full rules of Australian Football.

Features of the U10s Youth Girls (non-competitive) are as follows:

  • The size of the playing field is reduced.

  • Each team has around 9–12 players.
  • Games consist of 4 x 10 minute quarters.
  • No smothering, shepharding, barging or fending.

  • Players cannot knock the ball out of an opponent’s hands, push the player in the side, steal the ball from another player, smother an opponent’s kick or shepherd an opponent, or deliberately pull or grab the hair of an opponent.
