Spots still available in mixed AFL9s game

The AFL is always exploring ways of increasing participation in AFL at all levels within the community. One such idea is running a combined Auskick and AFL9s session. We asked our members & parents last week whether any one was interested and we’ve had a great response. However, if you haven’t responded its not too late.

The one-off AFL9s game will be played side-by-side with the Auskick program on 19 July. Start time will be just after 8am.

If this is something you would consider doing, could you please click on the link below and email back your response.

YES, I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY AFL9s ON 19 JULY

Training over school holidays

With NSW public schools breaking up for two weeks holidays this Friday, there will be some changes to the normal training and game schedule.

Juniors

Training for under-age junior teams will continue through the school holidays on a non-compulsory basis. Games in rounds 9, 10 and 11 are deemed by the AFL as holidays rounds, and thus we can field slightly smaller teams than normal to accommodate teams who have a large number of players away on holidays.

We would appreciate if you could notify your coach or team manager of your availability over the school holiday period, so that we can organise teams accordingly.

The weekend of 4-5 July is an official bye for AFL junior competitions. However, we are planning to run some friendly games against Willoughby Wildcats at Blackman Park. Click here for details of these games.

Auskick

Our magnificent group of Auskickers will also have a break, with no official Auskick on Sunday 5 July.

Expressions of interest – Women AFL9s game

IMG_0253The AFL is always exploring ways of increasing participation in AFL at all levels within the community. One such idea is running a combined Auskick and AFL9s session. We have been asked to gauge interest in such an idea.

Therefore, we are interested in finding out whether this is something that AFL Auskick Mums would be willing to undertake. The idea is to run an AFL9s training session and trial game side-by-side with the Auskick program on 26 July.

If this is something you would consider doing, could you please contact Paul Schofield.
