About The Club


Leichhardt Cygnets is a Junior AFL Club established in 2016.  It grew out of an Auskick centre which AFL NSW/ACT had been running at our home ground, Glover Street Oval, since 2014.

Everyone involved in the running of the club is the parent or guardian of a kid who started out playing Auskick.

2020 is our sixth year of operation as a junior football club. In 2020 we’ll field under 9’s, 10’s, 11’s and 12’s teams, as well as continuing our Sunday morning Auskick program for the younger kids.


Our motto, and guiding principle, is “Football, Family, Fun”, and we try to ensure that everything we do relates back to those guiding principles.  We’re fully inclusive and encourage everyone to give their all, and treat their fellow players and their coaches with respect.
