AFL Hunter Central Coast Social Football
You might be aware that the BDAFL has now been replaced by a new local AFL competition called the AFL Hunter Central Coast (AFL HCC) for 2019 and going forward. As was initiated last season under the BDAFL, the AFL HCC intends to run a social comp next year for older players. The basic arrangement is likely to be:
Play every 2-3 weeks with gala days utilised also
16 players on the ground - 17 minute quarters - Interchange (prob unlimited in numbers) Min age of 32 but 2 (prob) players down to 28 y.o. permitted AFL Masters code of ethics to be employed.
Last season four team from the central coast participated in the social comp and the AFL HCC is hoping teams from Newcastle area will also join next year. Hunter AFL Masters has again been asked to participate.
At this time, we are seeking expressions of interest from you to gauge whether we will have the numbers to enter a team. We intend to run our usual club AFL Masters calendar/draw regardless of whether we participate in the social comp. That means our club members/players would have the opportunity to play both Masters and social comp or either, depending on how the draws work out. There will likely be additional cost for players wanting to play both.
We don't know at this stage what other Newcastle clubs will be entering teams.
Could you please contact our secretary asap whether or not you are interested in playing in the AFL HCC social comp with Hunter AFL masters in 2019? (no commitment at this stage)
