Our Junior Program
The SMOSH West Lakes Junior Footy Program begins with our AusKick Centre (see below) and carries through to our Under 11’s. The focus of this program is fun, development, and mateship. The junior program is eligible to boys and girls in these age groups. However, girls eligible for U9 and U11 may register for an all girls competition (see Girls Footy for more).
Games are modified with unique rules and team numbers so that all participants enjoy their time playing football irrespective of their ability. All players have a capability to be very skilled and competitive, but each player will develop at different timeframes. Our Coaching staff are all accredited and led by the Junior Football Director who guides the program and the standards. Be assured that your child (boy or girl) will be developed professionally and earnestly.
If you wish to register your child, please select the register button above and follow the prompts through the SportsTG website. If your child has been registered before with another club or AusKick centre you will need to submit a transfer first. This can be done by going to the SANFL Juniors Forms page and downloading a copy. Follow the instructions there.
