The AFLW U19 Championships will kick off on Monday April 12 in Melbourne with six representative matches for the future players of women’s football.
The championships will be an opportunity for talented young footballers from all across the country to showcase their talent and some day soon be drafted into the AFLW.
Originally scheduled to be played on the Gold Coast, the AFL made the decision, following the COVID outbreak in Queensland to move the matches to Melbourne. As a result Queensland will be unable to play its Championship matches over the next two days, however, they are set to play against Victoria Country and Victoria Metro in May.
The six matches will take place over the course of two days and all matches are available to be streamed live.

Due to the disruptions caused by the pandemic, the AFL Talent Pathways Programs decided to adjust the age divisions from U16 and U18 to U17 and U19 for 2021. This gives the athletes who would have missed out due to last year’s championships being cancelled the opportunity to showcase their talent.
Following the two days of play, the AFLW National Academy will hold a high-performance camp, giving the young players the chance to be work with Academy coach Tarkyn Lockyer.
