AFL Cape York’s Community Engagement philosophy centres on activities that promote social justice, education, health and foster a strong sense of community spirit. Our Programs work very hard to support and drive leadership aspirations amongst participants and communities. It is the goal of AFL Cape York to demonstrate appropriate leadership and support those who wish to follow in the same footsteps and to become a positive role model in their own community.
Community engagement is at the forefront of our agenda and establishing the Eagles Junior Football Club, located at AFL Cape York House, Buchan St has been a highlight. The Eagles FC compete in youth age groups within the AFL Cairns Juniors Competition. The Eagles FC was founded in 2014 and has tasted monumental success in winning Four (4) premierships access the Under 15 and Colts (under 17.5) Competitions. The Eagles FC is an inclusive family-orientated Club giving Students inside and outside of AFL Cape York House the opportunity to play, learn and develop their leadership and volunteering skills.
We have the following teams playing with the Eagles FC; U16 and U14 Boys Teams, with the addition in 2019 we had our U15 Youth Girls join and successfully winning the 2019 Premiership in their first year and in 2020 we introduce our U18 Eagles Youth Girls Team, The Junior Competition is played on a Sunday afternoon, with matches spread across all nine Junior Home Grounds throughout the year and U18 Youth Girls play matches on Wednesday nights at various venues.
