Registrations open for AFLJ 7s series

We are proud to announce the inaugural 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.

Rules include:

  • 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 following divisions for both boys and girls.

  • Boys
    • Division A (for ages 11-13)
    • Division B (for ages 9-10)
  • Girls
    • Division A (for ages 11-14)
    • Division B (for ages 9-10)

Note that the age groups are only indicative. We plan to match teams with similar ability as closely as possible. Therefore, if players aged 10 can compete effectively against 12 or 13 year olds, then they should play in division A.

To register, please complete the registration form on our website.
