Players: 7 players on the field at any one time, 3 girls MUST be on the field at any one time in mixed grades.

Referees: Every team must provide a referee. We will always schedule your referee at the opposite time you are playing and we will try to do our best to rotate referees each week so you don't have to every week. 


Key rule changes and considerations from a module perspective would be:

β€’ Changes to field markings e.g., the 5-meter line is now a 7-meter line (All fields will now be marked with 7 metre lines)

β€’ Players are now expected to retire a fixed distance of seven metres to be onside (This was 5 metres)

β€’ On an intercept by a defending player, the first touch will now be zero (0) touch (This used to be classed as (1) touch)

β€’ Sin bin duration now defined as four (4) complete possessions (Hopefully this only happens at Adult Modules and its not often lol)

β€’ As well as significant changes to the drop-off procedure (Drop offs are only played on your finals day if the score is tied)
