All you need to know


Training sessions usually starts 4-5 weeks before the season commences. Most will be held at Steve Chisholm Oval (Blackman Park B3/4) on a Wednesday , Thursday or Friday afternoon (depending on your team or age group).

For the 2022 season, pre-season training will commence in early February. The sessions start in the late afternoon, with the exact time determined by each team. They consist of some craftwork and general warm up. Then each age group will be broken up and trained by their respective coaching team.

The sessions usually last around 1-1.5 hours.

AFL Sydney Juniors season

Season starts on Sunday (9 April). All home games will be at Blackman Park on Sunday mornings, with several Friday night games also in store.


We play in the AFL Sydney Junior Harbour North league. Ages groups from Under 9 upwards are entered.

We also have an agreement with neighbouring clubs to combine players if numbers are insufficient for additional teams in that age group. This could mean training times are slightly different than mentioned above.

For more information on the various age groups, please select from the main menu above under Juniors, or click on the links below.


We plan to field teams in the U10, U12 U14 and U16 youth girl age groups.

For more information on the various age groups, please select from the main menu above under Youth Girls, or click on the links below.


The full fixture is not released until a couple of weeks before the season commences. Once available, it will be uploaded onto our website. You will find them on each age groups page under the main menu. For example, U9 fixture can be found here.
