U12 AFL Championships head to Lavington

Thursday 3 August 2023

Our region's premier sporting precinct plays host to budding junior AFL talent from this weekend, with over 380 students and their families enjoying the 2023 National U12 AFL Championships.

The week-long event is being brought to our region by School Sport Australia, NSW Primary Schools Sport Association and AlburyCity.

Boys and girls from all over the country will come together at Lavington Sports Ground to compete in 30 games over five action-packed days of football, with the matches used to select an 'All Australian' team.

AlburyCity is also hosting a number of immersive cultural experiences for students while they're in the region.

For family and friends who can't make it to the event, AlburyCity have arranged a Livestream of each of the championship matches on the AlburyCity website.

Footy fans can also come along to the event for free, see some amazing junior talent, and soak up the exciting atmosphere.

AlburyCity Mayor Kylie King said she was excited to see the event head to Albury after the U15 Championships last year.

"After a hugely successful U15 Nationals in 2022, we’re so excited to have the U12 AFL Championships played right here at our premier sporting precinct, the Lavington Sports Ground," Mayor King said.

"The championships will bring families from all over the country to our region, injecting an estimated $4 million into our local economy, which is great news for our local businesses."
