Announcing the inaugural AFLJ 7s series

Written by Daniel Hynes

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. Full details are below.

Before we start taking registrations, we would like to gather expressions of interest to determine the age groups and team structure. However, its our intention that a competition for both girls and boys will be available.
