AFL 9s is the official social version of the game of Australian Rules. It's a fast, fun, free-flowing game that involves nine players on each team playing on a smaller field. Best of all, it's 'touch football' with no tackling or bumping, making it suitable for everyone.
The sport is played on an outdoor oval and will feature matches of two by 20 minute halves. Registration requires a minimum squad of 11 players. Each team may cross accredit a maximum of 3 players from another sport. There must be a minimum of seven players on the field to avoid incurring a forfeit. Teams may be required to complete team duties to assist with goal umpiring.
