Katherine's junior girls and boys AFL teams will spend most of the wet season on the road.
Only two homes are listed on the season draw released on Friday for the Under 18's boys, and two also for the girls.
Only on one weekend, February 9, will both boys and girls play in Katherine on the same day.
The competition has had a dramatic change this season with the withdrawal of Tracy Village from both boys and girls divisions.
For the Big River Hawks, the boys will open their season on October 12 at TIO stadium (No. 2) against Wanderers.
The girls team, which has been looking for a new head coach this season, will start their season also on October 12 also at TIO (No. 2) against Palmerston Magpies.
Each of the four NT AFL divisions begins on Saturday, October 12, a week after the Men's and Women's Premier League Round 1.
The draw has been adjusted to allow for a new Regional Challenge Carnival (formerly the Umpires' Carnival) on the first weekend of October.
The home games for the junior players are on November 17, December 8 and February 9.
The draws were released as AFL NT considers Katherine's application has applied to join the NT's competitive AFL women's league competition.
AFL NT is considering the formal request from the Big Rivers Hawks to join the Territory's premier women's league.
It comes after three successful season fielding an Under 18's girls team in the NT competition.
In the Under 18 girls competition, there will be nine teams this season after the Tiwi Bombers opted to not enter a side following its withdrawal from the 2018/19 season just after Christmas.
The grand final rematch between the Darwin Buffettes and Palmerston Magpies will be played in Round 4, as the Buffettes look to make it five-straight premierships in the Under 18 division.
AFLNT Manager of Community Football Rosanna De Santis thanked clubs for their patience.
"This year we are trying to align club fixtures as much as possible but need to await the scheduling of the junior games and the Women's Premier League before locking in the exact times, so we appreciate the understanding shown by clubs and players as the NTFL continues to develop and expand.
"Last season we had several issues with having to change games last minute because of junior regrading and the like, so we're trying to avoid this by getting a clearer picture upfront but still provide clubs playing in the senior divisions with enough details now to get organised for what's ahead."
De Santis said the organisation also hoped to be in a position to provide greater clarity around the Women's Premier League competition and fixture in the next week.
"The AFLNT Executive met and discussed the applications put forward by both the Big River Hawks and Tiwi Bombers to each field a side in the Women's Premier League. There's a little more work there to be done, but we hope to land on a decision in the coming days so we can progress the fixture," she said.
