JUNIOR FOOTBALL

The Geelong Amateur Football Club has for many years given young footballers their first
opportunity to play football in a team and club environment.

Our Junior Football Program includes U9 up to and including U17, with an emphasis on giving our young players the best environment possible for them to not only have some fun but to also develop football skills and learn the value in being a part of a team. We have high standards when it comes to selecting and appointing our coaching staff and ensure that all our members are fully trained and accredited coaches that have obtained current ‘Working with Children’ criteria.

The Club’s Junior football representation has grown steadily over the past few years and we are currently fielding twenty one junior teams in the local competitions ranging from our U9 teams through to our U17 squads. Children enjoy the great experience of not only playing at home at Queens Park but also traveling to and playing other sides in our region.

Gavin Dowling heads up our Junior Football program, taking on the role of Chairman of our Junior Committee. Gavin has behind him a great team of volunteer parents to assist him and is devoted to ensuring all young players get maximum enjoyment out of being involved with The Geelong Amateur Football Club Junior Program.

The club supplies football jumpers in team colours to all club players and Club socks are part of the membership package. Extra socks are available through the website. Players must provide their own shorts, boots and drink bottles.
