Kids First

Junior Clubs Put Kids First

Parents play an important role in children’s sporting activities,
and while barracking and wanting your child to perform well is
human nature, it needs to be done in a responsible manner.

AFL Kids First is a program that guides parents and supporters
towards positive behaviour to ensure everyone – particularly
children – obtains maximum benefits and enjoyment from their football.
Children who participate in junior AFL see the positive
example parents set both on and off the field.

To achieve family friendly, quality environments, all junior and youth
clubs across Queensland conduct an AFL Kids First session
for parents of new participants.

AFL Kids First is targeted at parents and clubs benefit enormously from
the program.

“By providing the best environment possible, our clubs will recruit
and retain participants, volunteers, sponsors and community support.”


Resources are online to easily enable club volunteers to conduct the parent

session and promote the program around the club.  For resources and
