School holiday break

With some school’s breaking for holidays this week, the AFL season also slows down.

In juniors, this weekend is designated a holiday round. That means the minimum numbers to field are team are reduced by 2. For the U9/10 age groups , you will only need 7 players to start a game. For an U11/12 game the min falls to 10.

But then AFL takes a break. The weekends of 7th and 14th of July there will be on Auskick or Junior footy.

Football returns on Sunday 21 July, when Auskick and round 12 of the junior competition will be played. This will also be designated an holiday round.
