AFL Round 1 Update

AFL 7/8 Division 1 team

Round 1 – Message from Convenor 

The season has kicked off for the AFL teams at Waverley College in exciting fashion last weekend, highlighted by Friday Night football at Bat and Ball Oval against Newington.

Our 9/10 Division 1 and 1sts teams came up against extremely strong competition and were unfortunately, defeated. Both teams played some exciting football and have a lot to look forward to this season. Newington look to have raised the bar an extra notch in 2023 and will be tough competition in all age groups.

On Saturday, we had teams travel to Bat and Ball Oval, Macquarie University Oval and Rofe Park, to take on teams from Newington, Barker and Trinity. Conditions were tough throughout the day, with a lot of rain falling. This made the large victories in the 7/8 Division 1 and Division 3 games, very impressive. Our 7/8 Division 2 team went down narrowly by one point to Trinity’s A team, playing some great football throughout the game. A strong performance across the age group for round 1.

In other games, our 9/10 Division 2 team and Open 2nds also played against Newington, our opponents on Friday night. Newington were able to clean sweep the fixtures against us for the weekend with the boys fighting hard in their games.

In all teams there were great signs for round 1 and plenty to look forward to this coming weekend.

Waves to Win!

AFL Playing Uniform and Absences

*Players need to arrive at the grounds no later than 30 minutes before the match is scheduled (or at the time advised by their coach), to ensure that teams have a thorough warm up.
