Year 7’s Included in Best and Fairest Votes for the First Time

Thursday, February 11, 2021 - 3:24 PM


The WAFC Central Conference & Demons District is pleased to inform community football stakeholders of a positive by-law change which includes all Year 7 Competitions into the Best and Fairest Vote counts.

In previous years, children in Year 7 competitions were exempt from competition vote counts due to age restrictions.

This by-law change has been adopted across all Metro Junior competitions to ensure competition consistency across WA.

Competitions Team Leader for the Demons District Dee More said “With Year 7 now aligned to secondary schooling, it is appropriate to extend voting to this cohort“. Mrs More went on to say “ Year 7 is an exciting district-based competition and provides a great opportunity for players and their families to make new friends.  I actively encourage new players to get on board and contact your local community club today” 

The Year 7 Age group is an important transition year into Youth Football from Modified Rules. As such, the WAFC, Metro Central RDC and Demons District have partnered up to support the delivery of a Youth Football Invitation carnival proposed for Sunday, 18th April 2021. This event will allow coaches and teams to familiarise themselves with Youth Football under the guidance of WAFC and RDC Competition Officials and District Staff.

Club’s within the District will be notified with more information on this event soon.
