OMYFL Trophy Events

Introduction

Following the change to non-competitive football for younger age groups, leagues are allowed to provide trophy competitions during the season to give a taste of competitive football. These trophy competitions last for a set period of time and can be of varying formats. Typical formats will be seeded groups, end of season tournaments, ladder competitions and Champions League Format. Teams from U7–U11 will take part in trophy events under the new format. Depending on the format used, these trophy competitions may take place at central venues or at the venue of the first named club.

The Under 7s and Under 8s will have two Trophy Events during the season, and the Under 9s, Under 10s and Under 11s will have two Trophy Events along with a Knockout Cup competition (with development games for teams not making it through the rounds). Details of each event will be posted when available. The scheduled dates for the trophy events in 2016-2017 are as follows but may be subject to change:
