Spring into AFL 9s

Thursday, September 19, 2013

AFL 9s is the Australian Football Leagueís fun, fast and exciting alternative version of the game.  

Itís a great way to have fun with your friends playing a modified version of the traditional game in mixed, menís or womenís competitions.

Itís a little bit different to the traditional game.  Some of the key differences with AFL 9s include:

  • Itís 9 a side on a smaller field with three zones
  • Players must start in their zones but can then run anywhere
  • Forwards are the only players permitted to score but players rotate between positions throughout the game
  • In mixed competitions males score 6 points for a goal whereas females score 9 points
  • There is no tackling, itís Ďtouch footballí.
  • A mark is awarded irrespective of the distance the ball has travelled.
  • If the ball hits the ground it is an automatic turnover.

Rustle up some mates and come play!
