Training this weekend (30 Jun 2019) will not be conducted; however, we will resume Sundays from 07 Jul 2019 for a 1200 start being a warm up and game. We intend to have a game every two weeks, with the alternate being more focused on skills; however, game based activity after the skills session. The oval will be either RMS, Muldoon or Neil French. The RMS oval is in great condition after its development work to increase the size.


Additional training sessions will be conducted on Wednesdays commencing from 03 Jul 2019 at 530-600 for an hour and we intend to rotate through a range of venues. The first few will be at the Neil French Oval and we will advise as other options are confirmed.


In addition to AFL Masters scheduled training, the local senior AFL Clubs are more than accommodating if any AFL Masters would like to attend their Tuesday or Thursday training nights. I have had good conversations with the majority of club Presidents over the last week. If you would like to know any more information please advise.


The registrations for the AFL Masters National Carnival have been broadcast on our club Facebook, if you are not already aware. Please ensure your start conducting the extra training to ensure you are ready for the AFL Masters National Carnival if you are intending on playing.


The respective State coaches will be advised in the near future. Many thanks for Dave Lindsay and Chris Mohrwinkel who will be assisting Dean and I with coaching. If you would like to assist, please let us know as we would appreciate the support as we develop the AFL Masters, leading towards the National Carnival.


Any questions please email or call.
