Introduction to Age Group Structure 2016

Junior AFL moves from an Auskick clinic based program to an age based competition at Under 9 level. 
The age as at 31 December 2015 is used to determine age group eligibility. The Mosman Swans recommend kids remain in Auskick/Superkick programs until in school year three and reach a minimum age of 7.5.

Under 9 through to Under 10 are non-graded competitions, with the competition divisionalised on purely geographic boundaries to minimise travel. Under 9’s, under 10’s are non-competitive, with no results posted, ladders kept or finals held. Under 11 we move to a graded structure, with teams divisionalised according to ladder position and ability, rather than geography.
