Salisbury Football Club Juniors

Junior Football is for players aged 5-16 years.

Salisbury Football Club proudly fields ten teams in the SANFL. We have seven mixed teams for boys and girls up to the age of 12, an Under 16s boys team, and an 16s girls team.

You can find information regarding the League on the North Eastern Metro Junior Football Association website but here is why we think children benefit from playing Football…

  1. Children love sport! Running around and having a go, Football is a great way for children to run around and use up some of what seems like an endless supply of energy.
  2. Friendly competition teaches life skills. It is a fun way to build up the confidence required to be successful in school and provides an understanding of both achievement and dissapointment in a supportive atmosphere.
  3. Overall health and fitness is becoming increasingly important in a society where physical activity has been replaced by the convenience of technology. Competitive team sports are an opportunity for people of all ages to have fun while exercising with the encouragement of your team and supporters.
  4. The social benefits are also well worth mentioning. Your child not only will have an interest they can share with others but will also get to mix with a new group of people. This allows social skills to be improved and increased self-esteem.
  5. Football in particular will help improve physical fitness, hand-eye coordination and communication through working as a team. Club members enjoy a feeling of community and mateship that we believe is stronger in football clubs than in any other sport.
