The first season of Junior Gridiron in the ACT was played in 1991. At one stage there were as many as nine Junior teams playing in the local competition which was divided into two divisions – High School (ages 14–16) and College (ages 16–18). The current Junior competition is contested in one division by players 18 years old or younger.
The Junior Competition runs alongside the Senior Men’s Competition from October to December. All games are held at Greenway Enclosed Oval, Tuggeranong.
