Below is a brief description on how to play AFL 9’s:

The game is played between two teams of nine (9) with interchange players.

The field has a maximum 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. Game time 2 x 20 minute halves.

Tackling will be either a two-handed touch or by the removal of a tag that each player wears. (oztag style)

AFL 9’s is a great way for any parent or child who is new to the game of AFL to learns the rules and skills while also playing in a game that is fast and fun.
