ALBURY-Wodonga Junior Football League clubs are following one of the code's most famous cliches by taking it "one week at a time".
With the coronavirus pandemic forcing officials to abandon their regular home and away season, clubs are playing practice matches in "bubbles".
North Albury, Albury, Lavington and Corowa-Rutherglen have started a round robin series while Wodonga and Wodonga Raiders are playing in Wodonga.
Yarrawonga has formed its own competition with youngsters from nearby clubs being involved.
"If kids can have a game of footy, why not give it to them," North Albury under-16 coach David Gardiner said.
"They are enjoying it."
In this weekend's matches, North Albury and Lavington will play under 12, 14 and 16 matches from 9am at Bunton Park on Sunday.
The clubs will clash from 11am in under-18s on Saturday.
North Albury showed some outstanding form to defeat Albury in the under-16s last weekend for the first time in a decade.
Albury and Corowa-Rutherglen are clashing at the Albury Sportsground on Saturday from 9am.
"We are just going week by week and it's all working out well at the moment," Albury president Craig McPartland said.
"As the rules change, we will change with them.
"We will play a round robin at this stage and see how it pans out."
District league clubs have also started playing matches in recent weeks.
