By 13 the boys are playing on full sized grounds and under the Laws of Australian Football with only minor modifications. The players are introduced to some of the tactics and strategies they will see being played at the elite level.  It is at this stage that talented youth players may be identified to participate in district football programs as part of their pathway to the senior football.

Key Principles:

  • Play with mates

  • Fun and safe

  • Focus on developing skills and tactics

  • Modified rules, playing area, and equipment
