Junior Competition

Our Junior Competition caters for members ages 9 years up to 17 years old.

We have two seasons per year, Summer and Winter.

Our Summer season runs 4th school term and 1st school term the following year.


Our Winter season runs 2nd and 3rd school terms.


Each season consists of 2 weeks of grading where players are assessed on their skill and ability levels and placed into teams (changes to teams my still occur for two weeks after grading), followed by 16 weeks of games then 2 weeks of finals. Junior competitions and trainings DO NOT run during any school holidays.

Competitions are run at Morayfield Sports and Events Centre on Thursday nights for all age group bar Under 11’s. Unders 11’s are run Tueday nights at Morayfield Sports and Events centre. Training is once per week for one hour at various locations around Morayfield, Caboolture and Burpengary.

Players are required to wear plain black shorts with no pockets for all games. A shirt under their jersey is permitted however it must be black and skin tight. Hair should be tied up so the jersey number on the back is visable to the refereees during the game. All jewelry must be removed prior to playing and nails must be short.

We provide playing jerseys for the season which the team manager is responsible for distributing and collecting each week. Parents are required to help with score bench duties on a rotating roster.

We are always looking for volunteers to coach and manage the teams, so if you have an interest in either of these roles please let us know. Children are allowed to coach younger age groups if the junior coordinator feels they are ready and capable.

Code of Behaviour

  • Play by the rules

  • Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition.

  • Control your temper. Verbal abuses of officials, sledging other players or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in any sport.

  • Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.

  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.

  • Treat all participants in your sport as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.

  • Cooperate with your coach, team-mates and opponents. Without them, there would be no competition.

  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please your parents and coaches.

  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion
