Inclusive Junior (11-18s age) Competition


EFD 2016 is now complete and in the off-season teams are all seeking to add players and depth to their squads for the 2017 campaign.

On top of setting and scoring more more goals, players for a 2017 junior state Special Olympics squad will be sought out by coaches.

For Equal Footingball Division Juniors, male and female players of all abilities* aged 11 to 18 can register at local clubs for a competition season. 2017 registrations will commence around January-February 2017.

*Players need to be able to move unassisted around a small pitch, with concession for walking aids.

Equal Footingball Division Juniors players learn skills, grow confidence, develop teamwork and score some goals. To emphasise these ideals no scores, goalscorers list or competition ladder is kept.
