Under 9s

Welcome to the Under 9s Team Page

In 2021 players born in 2012 will play in the Under 9s.

We have two teams in this year’s competition, and we are actively recruiting for the teams – please get in touch with infonewtownswans@gmail.com if you’re keen to learn more or register for the 2021 season.

Under 9s is the first year in ‘Juniors’, no longer part of the Auskick program. Rules are still modified to promote inclusion, fun and skills development, but players are permitted physical contact in the form of ¬†‘bear hug’ tackling the opposition. There is no scoring in Under 9 as the focus remains on skill development and team work and player positions are rotated.¬†Coaches may still be on the field, but are further from the action than in Auskick. Umpiring is provided by official umpires, most of whom are teenagers who are also AFL players.


Training is to be confirmed, but will be at Alan Davidson Oval, Sydney Park

If you would like to play in one of our Under 9 teams, please see the information on our Join the Club page.
