We are excited to kick off the inaugural AFLS Social Aussie Rules Football Season at 10.45am on February 17th at NH Scott Park, Decatur. Four teams will play games for the 6 week regular season and then vie for the Premiership trophy in a playoff series. The game of AFLS is non tackle version of Aussie Rules football that is completely safe with no contact whatsoever. The games are fast, fun and high scoring and can be played by anyone.
We will be playing two games simultaneously so we can all socialize at breaks and after the games. Should be a load of fun. Players have come out for our 5 trial games have been split evenly onto four teams but there is plenty of room for extra players.New players will be given a run down of how to play. It takes only 5 minutes to learn.
The cost of the season of 7 games is $50 and for that you free passes for friends to try the game, umpires, free team shirt to play in, drinks during and after the game and snacks as well. Also insurance has been arranged via the USAFL where new players must registered and past players must update their details to be covered.
A new website also has been developed to capture all the information, update scores and stats and where you can pay your registration. Jump over to www.aflsocial.com now and sign up.

We are introducing to Atlanta our local family social sports game that anyone really can play called AFLS. AFL stands for Australian Football League, the S = Social.
The game is played 7 aside, on a field 75-90 yards in length normally used for soccer or football (or can be slightly oval shape) and will have men's, women's and co-ed games. The game is entirely safe like any other Recreation sport, so is a 100% non tackle and non contact game everyone can enjoy. It will great for keeping yourself and the entire family fit and active during winter or the whole year round. The added bonus is having a ton of fun and meeting many new friends. You might even meet some Aussies!
Teams are forming now (Sign up your team now), or sign up as an individual and we will place you on a team that needs you. And you only need 7 players to play. A minimum of 3 women on the field at any time is required for co-ed league games and they score higher points when they kick a goal, so ladies come on down. Players can rotate on and off the field at any time for a rest, so a few extas will come in handy.
