We are proud to announce the return of AFLJ 7s series, to be played at Blackman Park this November.
The aim of the series is too fold, Hopefully it will give children who haven’t played before a taste of junior footy. However, it will also give current players an option to keep their skills up to scratch over the summer.
The game will be slightly modified to create a fast paced, low impact version of the game. It will be played on a small sized oval and involve only 7 players on the field. Each team can also have up to three reserves.
- Played on a 75m long oval.
- 10-12 min halves, with a short half time break.
- 7 a-side, with max 3 interchanges.
- No centre bounces, with kick-ins from full-back after each score.
- No mark given when ball kicked backwards.
Games will be played on the turf fields at Blackman Park. Competition is scheduled to commence on 1 November and be played over 4 weeks. It will culminate in a playoff to determine the winner in each division.
Due to a variety of age groups, we plan to run the divisions for both boys and girls. The exact nature and number will depend on registrations.
When: Mondays, 5 – 26 November, 2018
Where: Blackman Park B3/4, Lloyd Rees, Lane Cove West
