New to football? Let’s help you get started! Read more below about why you should play football as well as the different ways you can play in Australia!



American Football is broadly categorised into two styles:

  • the high-impact, physical full contact or "Tackle" football; and 

  • the fast and technical Flag Football. 

You can play one or both styles, depending on your preference.  Further, within each style there are numerous positions that offer very different experiences.  Try them all and see which position you prefer!

American Football is a sport for all. It doesn't matter your shape, size or ability - we will have a role for you!



Tackle Football is how we refer to the traditional full-contact code of American Football you likely know and love.

Tackle Football offers many opportunities for players of all abilities to get involved locally, and to go as far as their ability and commitment will take them from state, national and international opportunities.

Follow in the footsteps of Australian greats like Jesse Williams, Adam Gotsis, Matt Leo, Daniel Faalele, and Jordan Mailata from local football all the way to the NFL.



Flag football is a variant of American football where, instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier.

Flag football is designed to create more opportunities for people of all backgrounds, and abilities to be involved in the game - and now offers pathways from grass roots social competition all the way through to US Colleges, a US Pro League, and the Olympics.

Playing flag football allows athletes to get used to playing in space with others while learning basic movements and skills for success in football and beyond. Flag football also encourages teamwork, communication, and sportsmanship. Players must work together to advance the ball down the field and score points, and must communicate effectively to execute plays and strategies.

“The game of football is one of strategy and tactics. It's a game of inches and seconds, of strength and speed, of will and determination.”
