Teams can have unlimited number of players, but as a general rule, 12 players per team works well with 9 on the field and 3 subs - this also allows for unavailability of players sometimes.
Mens & Mixed teams: $800 per season (for example, this split between 12 players = $67 per player for the season).

AFL 9s is the new 9-a-side, touch version of Australian football that everyone can play, now at Wilston Grange!
It is a shorter and less physically demanding version of footy that promotes social interaction, fitness and fun with your friends while incorporating all that you love about the traditional game. It is easy to learn, safe to play and lots of fun.
Distinctive features of AFL 9s include:
The game is played between two teams of nine with interchange players
The field is soccer pitch sized and is divided into three zones
Teams kick the football into their scoring zone to designated forwards who are the only players permitted to score.
A mark is awarded irrespective of the distance the ball has travelled and if the ball touches the ground it is an automatic turnover
In Queensland competitions, a two handed touch method is used to effect a 'holding the ball' decision.
In mixed competitions, three players of each gender must be on the field at all times and female goals are worth 9 points!
AFL 9s is an ideal way for you to keep fit and have fun with friends. So get a group of friends together, register a team and have a kick with us!
