Leagues and Clubs

We are an autonomous corporate entity authorised by the SANFL to carry out various activities involving football. To foster grassroots participation in football, the South Australia community established about 24 clubs across different regions with one metropolitan league known as the South Australian Amateur football league (SAAFL), a women’s football league and six junior leagues comprising of boys and girls.

The South Amateur Football League

This league is the male senior league of the SANFL based in Australia. It consists of several teams and also allows competition with other club players of the same standards. The teams are assigned numbers based on performance, and the spirit of sportsmanship and hospitality guides them. 

Discipline is enforced through laid down rules and guidelines. Also, football training is predetermined and happen on different days. Team members must attend at least two of our weekly field practices. 

The 24 clubs on our senior league include

  • Barossa Light & Gawler Football Association

The Women Football League

Gone are the days where football participation was gender-based and restricted. Female football activities keep increasing daily, and the South Australian community is not left out in the developing trend. The female team is relatively smaller than the male team because of the old stereotypical opinion about football.

The female league consists of teams trained based on sportsmanship and trains at least three times a week. There are local competitions from time to time that include female’s participation. Most times, women football matches are deliberately organised.

The teams are ranked in order of performance, especially when there is an upcoming tournament. The league is run by the South Australia football league and promoted alongside the male team.

Are you interested in joining a female football team or an enthusiast? We are currently scouting for players, and we will gladly welcome you. There are no special skills needed other than your enthusiasm, hard work and commitment. 

We practice at least twice a week, and the auditorium with the address below is wide open to everyone who wishes to watch us play.
