Playing Fields

AFL International soccer fieldAustralian Football matches are played on large cricket sized fields, featuring 18 players per team. Add another 4 reserve players per team, plus 6 umpires, and you need 50 people to play a match of traditional Australian football.

Aussie Rules Schools is designed to make it much easier for participants to enjoy playing a new game, without the difficulty of trying to find a large enough field and recruit a small army in order to play.

All matches are 9-a-side and played on either Soccer, Rugby or Gridiron fields.

The reasons for developing a modified version of the game outside Australia include:

1. The lack of full-sized ovals. As Soccer / Rugby / Gridiron fields are in plentiful supply it makes sense to be able to utilise them.

2. Children can learn a new game whilst in surrounds they are comfortable with.

3. Played on smaller fields, our schools program is mixed (boys & girls) and non-contact, therefore allowing for greater concentration on developing skills.
