As proposed every team will play 3 matches of 2 x 30 minute halves with a 5 minute break in between and every team having at least a three day break in between matches.

Competition will commence on Wednesday 10th March and round 3 matches will conclude on Friday 26th March where Finals will follow on Monday 29th March and the Grand Finals will follow on Wednesday 31st March.

The format is as follows:

  • After 3 rounds Seniors will have a final ladder where every team has finished.

  • The top 4 (out of 12) for Seniors will play off as follows:

-         Ladder Position 2 will play Ladder Position 3 in a Preliminary Final to advance to Grand Final.

-         Ladder Position 1 will play Ladder Position 4 in a Preliminary Final to advance to Grand Final.

  • Finals and Grand Finals will follow the same format of 2 x 30 minutes halves with a 5 minute break in between.
  • Unlimited numbers on the bench including Finals and Grand Finals.
  • In the event of a DRAW in Finals or Grand Finals a ‘Shoot Out’ for goal will occur which will involve:

-         1 player being selected from each team and taking 5 kicks for goal from directly in front no closer than the 50 metre arc.

-         The player with the highest score after 5 kicks will win on behalf of his team.

-         If the scores are even after 5 kicks the ‘Shoot Out’ will then be a ‘Sudden Death’ one for one kick system, meaning who ever is first to miss will lose the game.

-         The ball must carry to the goal line on the full for it to be registered as a score ie point, goal.

  • Entry fee for every person entering the ground is $2 (including players).
  • SFL Umpires are supplied for every single match.
  • All matches are SFL sanctioned meaning players/officials can be reported and suspended if necessary which will result in them being disqualified from the Pre Season Competition and the suspension will apply for the upcoming SFL season.
  • Every team must submit a manual team sheet (see attached - not generated from SportingPulse) each time they play which must be handed to the umpires by half time of their match.
  • All players do not need to be registered with the SFL at the time of playing however they must be on the team sheet.
