Buds Juniors caters for Players, both male and female, turning 5 in 2023 through to 15 Girls.

We generally do not field Adult Teams in Inter-district Competitions.

Mini-Roos Teams (5's up to 11's) are Girls, Boys and Mixed.

We do not have Boys JDL Teams. These Teams are run by our neighbours Adamstown Rosebud FC.

Junior Development Girls Teams and Women's Premier League Teams are selected via a rigorous trial process and are controlled and evaluated by Northern NSW Football.

Juniors Competition Teams, playing in Newcastle Football's Interdistrict Saturday and Sunday Competitions start at 12's through to 16 Girls. Trials are only run if we have more than 16 Players register for an age group.

Please see the Registration Tab on this website for more information about Playing Fees, Registration Sessions and Muster Days for Mini-Roos Teams. 

Facebook is updated regularly and is the best place to keep up with what's happening. You do not have to be a Facebook user to see the updates. Just Google the page name and put Facebook after it and you will be able to see all the information.

Players in ARJFC Juniors Teams need to play in their Age Appropriate teams i.e. the age they turn by 31/12/23

Turning 5/6 in 2023 play in 6's

Turning 7 in 2023 play in 7's

Turning 8 in 2023 play in 8's

Turning 9 in 2023 play in 9's

Turning 10 in 2023 play in 10's

Turning 11 in 2023 play in 11's

Competition Teams:

Turning 12 in 2023 play in 12's
Turning 13/14 in 2023 play in 14's
Turning 15 in 2023 play in 15's

The age groups with a split age composition are able to have two ages involved as sometimes we only have 12, 14, 16 and 18 Girls Teams, so no in between age groups.

By pushing younger players up into older age groups it is disrupting the age group below, and making it difficult to form teams. We can't kick a child that is the correct age out, to fit in a younger child, as that isn't fair.

Joining a team is a great way to make new friends and get to know other families that you may not see every day. Broaden your horizons and embrace new challenges!

Naturally, older age groups can always borrow a younger player to help out of they are short of players.

Fees have been set for 2023, approved by Newcastle Football and are as follows:

Small Sided Football Players  U6 through to U11 age groups

U/6 and 7 – $250.00

U/8 and 9 -  $280.00

U/10 and 11 - $280.00

Inter-District Competition Players 

 U/12 to U/18 $385.00

Please go to our Registration Tab for more information on the "Active Kids" $100 Voucher, the FFA Playfootball Registration System and how you can pay your fees in 2023.


ARJFC in the Junior Club will NOT allow players to play in older age groups unless there is a vacancy in an age group that cannot be filled by a player of the correct age.

This would only occur if we need to combine two age groups so it will allow us to field a Team and not turn players away.
