AFF teams vs. in-house Teams

All players in grades 13 and 14 are automatically placed in to an in-house team. In-house teams play against other members of our club at one of our 4 home venues. If you do not wish to play in-house then you must add this information to your registration.


Alongside in-house leagues (played solely against other ESAFC members), we also select a number of AFF teams prior to the Term 2 season. Please be aware that there is an extra fee for AFF team training sessions as you will have a professional coach.


To be eligible for an AFF team, you must take part in Term 1 Preseason training. For all training schedules, please select the correct grade from the “Players” tab at the top of the page.
