Junior Football

Wests Juniors fields teams in the AFL SEQ Junior competition.

Our 2021 season has now concluded with over 150 Junior players, 60 Auskickers and 36 Superstars playing this year for Wests. We look forward to welcoming new and returning families in 2022 when we start training around March. The Season dates are yet to be determined, but will most likely commence in Term 2 with a 12-14 game competition.

What is Junior Football?

 

Junior Football is the next step for kids who are ready to move on from NAB AFL Auskick or other introductory school and/or community programs. It’s the perfect environment for kids to have fun learning through play, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime. Rules of matches are modified so children can continue to develop their skills in an enjoyable, safe atmosphere.

Where do we play?

 

Games held on a Saturday morning in the local area in a home/away format against eg Sherwood, Moggill, Kenmore, Jindalee and Yeronga, with the younger age groups commencing at 9am and games running on the hour until conclusion.

 

What do I need?

 

Players are provided with a jersey which is returned to the club at the end of the season. Socks and shorts are to be purchased from the uniform shop prior to the season commencing. Mouthguards and boots are also needed. The club provides a mouthguard fitting service at the start of the season, costs of which can claimed back on your private health insurance or you can arrange for this to be done privately.  We have second hand boots for sale for $5.

 

Costing

Our fees are yet to be determined for 2022, but our season fees for 2021 ranged from $175 (Under 8.5’s) to $300 (Under 11.5 Boys).

 

Wests strives to provide a safe, friendly and engaging environment for young footballers and their families to enjoy the game of Australian Rules Football. Please contact our Junior Football Co-ordinator Belinda Tozer at belinda_donges@hotmail.com should you have any additional queries.

The Bulldogs spirit is encapsualted in our Club song:

We’re a pack of bulldogs
bulldogs are we (boom! boom! boom!)
we’re the Western Districts
the best team in the
whole of the competition

We’re a pack of bulldogs
bulldogs are we (boom! boom! boom!)
we’d rather play
than fight for victory


Up the dogs!
