Welcome to Junior Football at
the mighty eagles
EMERALD PARK EDGEWATER
Junior Football is the next step for kids who are ready to move on from NAB AFL Auskick. The Eagles Mods (Modified AFL/Juniors) caters for mixed boys and girls in school years 3-7 (aged 8 to 12 years) Rules of matches are modified so children can continue to develop their skills in an enjoyable, safe atmosphere.
Kids are gradually introduced to competitive football in stages as they gain skills and confidence throughout their years of Junior Football participation. EWJFC and our mods players are familiar with, and adopt, the “this is our game” philosophy. It is this philosophy that ensures all our participating boys and girls have a fun, safe and positive football experience that is suitable to their needs.
EWJFC Mods are in Falcons (West Perth) District and play games against teams from the following Falcons District clubs;
- Whitford Wildcats
- Oceanridge Sharks
- Joondalup-Kinross Jets
- Quinns Bulls
- Wanneroo Roos
- Brighton Seahawks
- Yanchep Redhawks
Fixtured games are played on a Sunday and run for approximately 1.5 hours including breaks (4 x 15 min quarters) Modifieds football is dependent on the help of various volunteers to assist in coordinating each game. Each week the team manager organises a first aid volunteer, 2 water runners, goal umpires, and parent umpires. Coaches and parent umpires are required to attend a course.
EWJFC Mods train once a week at Emerald Park, Edgewater. The day and time of the week will be set at the beginning of the season.
Mouthguards need to be worn to all training sessions and and games for Year 3’s upwardsA no mouthguard no play rules apply.
