AFL MASTERS is football that is designed to allow mature players the opportunity to participate safely in our great game of Australian Rules Football and to compete with similarly aged players. The opportunity to participate, to compete, to be physically active, healthy and fit is the main motivation of the players in our competition. Winning is not important with our games being played in the spirit of "FOOTBALL FOR KICKS" with the social interaction between all teams and players promoted as an important feature of our organisation. AFL MASTERS WA operates community based games for players aged 33 and over in the Metropolitan area as follows:
Players can play in divisions that are below their age but cannot play in divisions above their age. e.g a player that is 45 and over can play in any or all of the 3 divisions, a player that is 40 - 45 can play in Supers and/or Masters, a player that is 33 - 40 can play only in Supers. In the Country zones there is just the one division catering for all the age groups with special "tackling" rules applicable to players over 45.
The most important aspect of our game is that it is "football for kicks". It is for this reason that there are no ladders, finals or best & fairest awards.
All participants should adhere to this philosophy and accept these guidelines:
New players are always very welcome, but should be made fully aware of and abide by the above philosophy and what is required of them as a representative of our club and AFL Masters Australian Football.
