Junior & Youth Girls Football

Cover of AFL Youth Girl's CompetitionsThe development of a participation pathway for female participants beyond AFL Auskick is critical to the long-term growth and development of the game.

Currently female participants can participate in NAB AFL Auskick (5 12 years) and mixed junior and youth competitions (8 14 years).

For the safety of female participants the AFL's Junior Match Policy states that female participants who turn 14 years by January 1 in the year of play will be excluded from playing in any competition that is not a female competition conducted specifically for females.

It is also well documented that girls want to play in single-gender competitions.
