The Dolphins are offering a fantastic opportunity for female players of all ages to grow their skills in Australian Rules Football.


Youth Girls Footy At The Dolphins

Through qualified and skilled coaching, we aim that our Dolphins Youth Girls Teams have a strong pathway to continuously improve skills, develop as sportspeople, and establish new friendships. 

From the Auskick program or entering the club at a junior or senior level, we welcome all players. 

The AFL Youth Girls programme is custom made for young females of all abilities and aspirations, Youth Girls is an ideal progression from either NAB AFL Auskick or the mixed competition – or anyone new can join! It provides an opportunity to play in an all-girl competition within a club environment. 

Girls are welcomed enthusiastically in junior football with new all female teams starting up all over Melbourne and regional Victoria. 

Youth Girls matches for the Frankston & District Junior Football League are played on Sundays from April to September.

Girls, if you’re interested in getting involved and playing footy for the Dolphins, register your interest now!
