juniors – footy for fun
Footy4fun is the next step in the junior pathway for boys and girls who have graduated from the Auskick and Superstars programs.
Catering for teams in the Under 8, 9, 10 and 11 age groups using modified rules designed to allow players to develop gradually in a safe and fun environment.
With no tackling, a small field size of 80m x 60m and 9 a side teams, its a fun and safe way to start every childs AFL journey.
Under 9’s and Under 10’s
Children in these age groups are introduced to the wrap tackle, often compared to a bear hug and are not allowed to be taken to ground. Field size is increased to 100m x 80m with 12 players per side and scoring is not permitted.
At this age group the field size is increased to 130m x 90m and full AFL rules are now being introduced. At this age level we focus on correct tackling techniques and teaching players to protect themselves when being tackled. Scoring is now also permitted.
Thursdays – 5pm
Training is held on Thursday nights from 5pm at our home ground Peter Phelan Memorial oval, Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve, Moreton avenue Redbank plains QLD. Training start date to be annouced soon.
