Youth Football caters to teenage boys and girls aged 13 and up of all abilities and aspirations. It provides players with the opportunity to play in a graded competition within a club environment. Youth Football gradually gets more competitive to ensure once your child is 15 years old they are ready for the full rules of Australian Football.
At the Magpies, our focus is on the game and how you play it – not just winning. Our values come FIRST: Fun Improve Respect Support Team.
