AFL 9s hits Norm Minns for sum­mer

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Sport -

IT might only be De­cem­ber but com­pet­i­tive foot­ball re­turns to Wan­garatta later this month with the pop­u­lar AFL 9s com­pe­ti­tion be­ing held.

Run by AFL North East Bor­der, the mod­i­fied ver­sion of the game makes this com­pe­ti­tion avail­able to all age groups and abil­ity.

In the past, sev­eral lo­cal clubs have used the com­pe­ti­tion as a great way to fin­ish off pre-sea­son train­ing be­fore Christ­mas while lo­cal busi­nesses have also used it as a team build­ing ex­er­cise.

AFL 9s is the AFL’s of­fi­cial so­cial ver­sion of the game. It’s a fast, fun, freeflow­ing 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 com­pe­ti­tion will be held on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 17 from 6pm at the Norm Minns Oval – book your teams by email­ing zac.guil­[email protected] afl.com.au or call 0424 918 912.
