The FFA requires all players to play in their correct age group which may not correspond with your school year. The ‘U’ stands for Under, and the number is the age. Age is determined as at 1st January of the current season. Players may be permitted to play up an age group (at the discretion of the technical body), but are not permitted to play down an age group. Boys are not permitted to play in a girls competition, however girls may play in the boys competition up to U12.

Please ensure that you select the correct age group when registering.
