The final day of the annual AFL NSW/ACT Under 13 and Under 14 Joss State Zone Trials has played out in Albury today.

The carnival welcomed over 400 young players from across the region to take part in a week’s worth of football, with the AFL NSW/ACT Talent coaches assessing the already Academy-aligned players.

Albury Sports Ground and Albury City provided the teenagers with a unique experience of living and breathing Australian Football, twenty-four hours a day.

As a part of the week-long event, players were taken through a number of education sessions hosted by experienced AFL staff and coaches.

The most promising Under 13 and Under 14 players linked to the Sydney Swans and GIANTS Academies were broken into teams for the week’s play, depending on their age group and location.

The Murray, Sydney North, Sydney South, Northern Coast, Riverina, Western Sydney and the ACT and South Coast were all be represented throughout the week.
