Collingwood Park power AFC
The growth of the ‘Footy for Fun’ (8–11-year-old) program over the last several years at Collingwood Park Power has created an exciting opportunity at the club heading into 2024. For the first time in over a decade, the club intends to enter an U13 team in the Youth Football program run by AFL Queensland.
Youth Football is tailor made for players of all abilities and aspirations. It caters to teenage players aged from 12.5 to 17.5. With a strong group of Under 11s in 2023, the club intends to submit an U13 team in 2024, with the goal to build this program over the next few years, which may result in U15 and U17 teams within the next 3-5 years.
An ideal progression from either NAB AFL Auskick or Footy for Fun, Youth Football provides players with the opportunity to play in a graded competition within a club environment. Fun, fast and skilful, Youth Football is the chance for players to play footy with their mates and establish new friendships, with a distinct focus on team building.
Participation in the Collingwood Park Power U13 Team requires players to commit to two training sessions per week. With the offseason training program being optional, compulsory training sessions run from February – August.
Experienced players, as well as those who play other sports but wish to give AFL a go, are invited to join the Power and ‘hit the footy track’ with a committed group of team-first footballers.

Want to get amongst it?
The focus of the Youth Football program at Collingwood Park is great footy players, even better people. This involves developing team-first footballers, who learn not only important footy gameplay skills, structures, and strategies, but also, the mentality of going ‘harder for longer’, where they learn to outwork their opponents through a positive attitude and embracing any challenge at hand through grit and determination. By instilling this mindset, players are empowered to grow both as people and footballers, who learn to set high expectations for themselves, as well as working towards achieving team-defined goals, values, and expectations. – Go Power!!
