Whether it's their first time around or their third crack at interleague, the boys are excited to be playing at representative level.
The Hampden league will send two under 14 and two under 16 sides to the Junior Interleague Carnival in Hamilton on Sunday.
The teams will take on a host of neighbouring leagues including the Mininera and Warrnambool and District league.
Hampden Green under 16s captain Mac Petersen from Koroit said it was an honour to represent the league.
"I love it, you get to have a crack against all the good players in your area," he said.
The Emmanuel College student, who is playing his second year of under 16s interleague, enjoying the ultimate success at last year's carnival.
"It will be different being top-age this year instead of bottom-age last year," he said.
"It's a bit more responsibility."
Stephen Gurry, who will coach Green, said he was excited to see his side in action.
"Training is great, as you watch them their skill-level is really good," he said.
"Both squads are gelling really well and working really well."
Hampden White under 16s will be led by Warrnambool Football Club's Sam Artz who is also a top-age player this year. The 15-year-old said he was excited to play in his first carnival with the Hampden league.
"I can't wait, it'll be a real good experience," he said.
Artz, who switches between onball and half-forward, said he was looking forward to playing alongside South Warrnambool's Jonah Maher.
Co-captains Henry Robertson and Oscar Pollock will take charge of the Hampden Green under 14s team.
Pollock, who hails from Port Fairy and returns for his second year of interleague, said it was great to be selected again.
"You get to play with all the players from the other teams and you get to play with your mates," he said.
Cobden's Robertson is pumped for his first interleague carnival.
"It's an honour to play with friends and people I haven't played with before," he said.
Luke Smith from Cobden and Harry Keast from North Warrnambool Eagles will lead the Hampden White under 14s side.
Keast, who played interleague last year, said it was an important learning experience.
"You learn different drills from different coaches and how other kids play the game," he said.
"That helps you and makes you improve your game."
Smith, 14, said he was thrilled to be making his Hampden interleague debut.
"I think it's a good opportunity, you get to play with other boys from different teams," he said.
