The North Lakes Eels Junior AFL Club welcome all interested players, boys and girls from 3-14yrs, regardless of their experience or ability, as well as their families, to become part of our great family based Club. We are only in our twelfth year of operation with great success in junior and youth programs through our dedicated and enthusiastic parent group, coaching staff and amazing volunteers the future looks brighter than ever at the Eels.
We have many players and families who had never played footy before joining us, and parents who don’t follow AFL and had no idea of the rules. Of course we’ve also got plenty of avid AFL fans! And they all love being a part of EELS!
To us, it’s all about the kids. We want them to have fun in a safe, healthy, family-friendly environment. We encourage parents to be part of the club as much as they can, its about what you can do for this great club not what this club can do for me.
We want to continue to develop and grow into an active part of the growing North Lakes, Mango Hill and surrounding communities and our club the best community sporting option in the area.
Sing it loud and sing it proud!
"(Spoken): Out we come, out we come, out we come to play
Just for recreations sake to pass the time away
Lots of fun, heaps of fun, enjoy yourselves today
North Lakes Eels are hard to beat when they come out to play!
(Sing): So join in the chorus and sing it one and all
Join in the chorus, North Lakes is on the ball
Good on North Lakes, they're champions you'll agree
North Lakes Eels are the football club to play for you and me!"
The North Lakes Eels Junior AFL Club was established in 2010 by the AFLQ who saw a need for a local club so children from one of the fastest growing areas in South East Queensland could play football close to home. With help from an enthusiastic group of volunteers, the club kicked off its inaugural season in 2010. The club fielded teams in the under 8s and under 9s - an encouraging achievement for a junior club in its inaugural year. In 2011 we saw an additional U8s team recruited to give us two U8s and an U9s team. With continued growth in the following years, 2017 saw our first youth team U12s make the clubs first appearance in a final series. In 2018 the club fielded all junior age groups and introduce two youth girls teams in the U13s and U17s, which both teams made the grand final and the U13s became the clubs first Premiers.
In 2019 was a successful season starting with amazing numbers at our first Club run Auskick program with 62 participants flowing into 3 Roy’s teams this season. Our junior numbers were up on last year to 78 players and our Girls became the clubs first Division 1 team and reached another final series and finished 3rd out of 24 teams in the U13s competition.
Congratulations to Izzy who became our first Female Best and Fairest in her Division and only the second player to do so in our clubs short history. In 2020 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary in what was a very difficult and unique season, however it was our biggest year in our history. The Kinderkick program was introduced for the first time with a great response and so to was our Auskick program with recorded numbers again with over 65 participants. The Club fielded four Under 8s teams for the first time and a record number of junior girls playing within the Club through all the age groups. The Club also introduced an Under 11s girls team for the first time as well with amazing success, along with an Under 12s team for the second time in the Clubs history. Our Under 13 girls team had another great season finishing runners-up and reaching their second Grand final in three years. The Club also saw the installation of the New light towers to our oval which was made possible by Luke Howarth MP through a Government funded grant. The Club had fantastic support again from our sponsors which we reach 19 businesses that wanted to be a part of the Eels. 2020 was a tough year for everyone but we managed to have a great journey this season with new sponsors and families joining us along with returning families which we hope to see again in 2021.
