Abbotsford Juniors Football Club offers competition football for girls and women of all ages including access to mixed and girls-only teams at Junior and Youth levels.  The Club's Academy football skills development program is available to girls aged 8 to 14 years.

At the Junior Football level :

• Girls aged 5 to 7 years can participate in Under 6 and Under 7 mixed teams playing small sided, non-competitive football focussing on fun and enjoyment while learning how to play our game.  

• Girls aged 8 to 11 years are able to join our junior teams playing mixed or girls-only, non-competitive football in Under 8, Under 9, Under 10 and Under 11 age groups.  Teams and pitch sizes are adjusted according to age.

For more information on Under 6/7 and Small Sided Football for AJFC Junior teams please see our Juniors Small Sided Football FAQ.

At the Youth level :

• Girls aged 11 to 18 years can play youth football as part of the Canterbury and District Soccer Football Association (CDSFA) competition.  Girls Youth football competitions are offered in Under 12, Under 13 and Under 14 age groups and a combined age group for Under 16 and Under 19 (Women's Intermediate League) players.

At a Senior level :

• Women keen to play competitive football can join AJFC teams in Women’s Intermediate League (ages 16 to 19 years), All Age and Over 35 (formerly Over 30) age groups

General information :

• AJFC girls and womens teams are graded into divisions each year based upon past season results and player ability by the Association

• All girls and womens' competition matches are played on a Sunday (home and away).

• The season generally commences at the start of April and finishes at the end of August.  Unless exceptional conditions apply such as COVID-19 or adverse weather, no games or training sessions are held during school holidays

• Training Sessions are conducted at Campbell Park and Lysaght Park most usually on weekday evenings as scheduled by the team manager and coaches

(As all our team managers and coaches are volunteers, the exact times and days for training are reliant on their availability. Team managers and coaches planning to coach an AJFC girls team must get a valid Working With Children Certificate)
