AFLJ 7s Series kicks of with a bang!

What a great start to our AFLJ 7s Series. With eight teams registering for this competition, we had plenty of enthusiastic kids kicking the ball around the park (which is always a great sight) on the night.

The series involves teams of seven playing on a short 75m long rectangle field. Games only go for 30mins, and involve a modified set of rules, including only touch tackles and no balls during game time. It means the games are fast and furious.

The Boys Div A division had players form Lane Cove Cats, Willoughby and North Ryde. They Boys Div B division was mostly from Lane Cove, including the best dressed team called Cockatoo. Even though they were aged around 8-9 years old, they put up a great fight against some older boys.

With only two teams in the Girls Div A division, we plan to mix the teams up to keep it fresh. We had girls from 8 up to 14 years old. But they all played brilliantly and with a spirit you rarely see in competitive junior sport.


If you didn’t register and are still keen to play, you are still welcome to come along as there are some teams that need extra players. Please send an email to

The entire series fixture for each division can be viewed on our website.
