Fees for Super League are higher than other divisions due to the additional coaching.

SEASON ’22 FORMAT FOR JUNIORS
There are 20 weekends for Junior Mixed competitions. Refer to the Dates page for season start/end, holidays and events.
The format for all competitions is as follows:
- 18 round competitions (less washouts) with a two-week final series for the top 4 teams (1 v 4, 2 v 3, winners progress to grand final).
- To schedule 18 competition rounds, NSFA may not be able to achieve equal competitions where teams play each other the same amount of times. The draw is randomly generated prior to the commence of the season so there will be no bias at play.
- 6 – team divisions: 15 rounds plus 3 extra rounds drawn at random
- 8 – team divisions: 14 rounds plus 4 extra rounds drawn at random
- 10-team divisions: 18 rounds
- The grand final winner will be declared the “Final Series Winner”. First past the post in every division will be referred to as the “Premiers”.
- Invitation to participate in Champion of Champions will still be decided by the team that finishes as “Premiers” (First Past The Post) in ‘Super League’ of each age group.
