Welcome to Lane Cove Cats

The Lane Cove Cats is an award-winning junior AFL club on Sydney’s lower North Shore. We promote a positive, family-friendly environment welcoming all kids, parents and volunteers to the club.  Our club has a proud history of supporting the development of young AFL players of all ages and abilities.


The NAB AFL Auskick program provides boys and girls (aged 5 to 8) with a fun and safe Australian Football experience that serves as a great introduction to the game. The program activates and develops the desire for a healthy lifestyle and an lifelong association with our great game.

Auskick runs every Sunday at 8am at Blackman Park, Lane Cove West. 

 Juniors & youth

Juniors include age groups for boys U9 to U12 and girls U10 and U12 divisions. The Youth teams play in age groups U13 to U17 for boys and U14, U16 and U18 for girls divisions.

Training is run on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons at Blackman Park. The majority of games are played on Sunday mornings, with some Friday night games under lights.


AFL 9s is the social version of the game. It’s a fast, free-flowing game of 9 team players on on a smaller field. Best of all, AFL 9s is easy to play. It’s touch football which is not too physically demanding and provides an environment where fun, enjoyment and safety are a priority. AFL 9s enables people of all ages and ability levels to participate in male, female or mixed competitions.
