AFL 9’s Term 1 2016 Competition

AFL 9’s Term 1 2016 Competition

AFL Cairns will be running a Term 1 (January-March) 2016 AFL 9’s Competition on a Wednesday Night at Cazalys Stadium.

AFL Cairns is holding a ‘Come & Try’ Session on Wednesday, 27th January 2016 from 6pm at Cazalys Stadium with the Term 1, 8 Week Competition commencing on Wednesday, 3rd February 2016 (and concluding Wednesday, 23rd March 2016 – just in time for Easter!).

AFL 9’s is the AFL’s official social version of the game. It’s a fast, fun, free-flowing game that involves 9 players on each team playing on a smaller field. Best of all, it’s ‘non-contact’ with no tackling or bumping, making it suitable for everyone (Players must be 15 years or older) of any skill level. AFL 9s is easy to play, not too physically demanding and provides an environment where fun, enjoyment and safety are a priority.

In short: The game is played between two teams of nine (9) with interchange players. The field has a recommended length of 100 metres (which can be modified depending on the age and ability level of participants) and is divided into three zones: a mid-zone and two scoring zones.

Teams score by kicking the football into their attacking scoring zone to designated forwards who are the only players permitted to score. A mark is awarded irrespective of the distance the ball has travelled and if the ball hits the ground it is an automatic turnover.

AFL 9s is a non-contact version of the game which requires players to implement a touch in place of a tackle.
