Registration for season 2020 now open here. 

Welcome to the 2020 Season of AFL Juniors in Cairns.


As a junior club, we have teams in every age group from under 6's to under 18's.

With the introduction of the Womens League in AFL, we are hoping to develop enough junior girls to have a dedicated side for Girls in the U/15 and U/18 competition.  Currently we have girls competing in the various age groups up to the U/13 division.

AFL Superstars / Auskick Program

Junior Match Programs for players aged 5 years to 7 years.  This competition will run for approximately 8 weeks during the season.  The Auskick players will then play in a Superstars competition against other clubs in Cairns.


Prior to Easter the main training sessions (non-competitive/competitive) will be Wednesday nights until Easter. After Easter Junior Training will be Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5pm - 6pm.  Further information will provided by team coaches.


Junior age groups including U/8, U/9, U/10, U/11, U/12, U/14, U/15 Youth Girls, U/16 will play on Sundays through-out the season with no games scheduled during school holidays. Auskick and Superstars will play on Friday night (TBC) commencing in March and May respectively.  The U/18 Youth Girls and U/18 Colts will be scheduled on Wednesday night.


The Cairns Saints Juniors also provide a pathway for the AFL Cape York Eagle boys to ensure that they can be involved competition football as soon as they come to Cairns.  This has resulted in boys that have stayed in Cairns at the completion of their studies, playing for the Cairns Saints Seniors.
