The NFNL’s six junior representative sides begin their 2018 AFL Victoria Metro Junior Championships campaign tonight.
The AFL Victoria Metro Junior Championships is the first stage of the AFL Victoria talented player pathway.
More than 1000 of Melbourne’s best junior footballers will don their representative jumpers as part of the Championships.
It gives respective TAC Cup regions an opportunity to view these players at a higher level than they experience each week in club matches.
Held at local venues across Melbourne, the Championship series brings together the top junior players in the Under -14, Under-15 and Under-15 Girls age groups.
Eight metropolitan leagues will have representative teams participating this season, including sides from the Northern Football Netball League (NFNL), Eastern Football League (EFL), Essendon District Football League (EDFL), Riddell District Football Netball League (RDFNL), South East Juniors (SEJ), South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL), Western Region Football League (WRFL) and Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL).
The tournament will see all teams compete in a three-game round-robin competition, with the top two teams in Division 1 Pool A and Pool B playing off in Grand Finals.
The Under-15 Division 1A, Under-15 Division 1B and Under-15 Girls Grand Finals will be played on Saturday June 23, while the Under-14 Division 1A and Under-14 Division 1B will be held on Saturday June 30.
The NFNL will compete Division 1 of the Championships for the second-consecutive season.
Our Division 1 Under-15 Girls team will be looking to defend our 2017 premiership, while for the first time we will field a second Under-15 Girls team in Division 2.
The Northern Football Netball League wishes all of its players and coaches the best of luck during the Championships.
