AFL Nines at Byron


Does your school love AFL Nines? Show us how!  

To celebrate World Teachers Day on Friday 25th October, AFL Schools is offering an incredible prize for the school that can demonstrate that they are the best AFL Nines school in Australia! 

In order to win, your school firstly needs to host a Staff v Students game of AFL Nines, and then submit an entry via email to that demonstrates in your most creative way why you are the best AFL Nines school in Australia!

Entries can be in any format that can be emailed, i.e. written, poster, video, mural, song or dance! Think about how you can make the event as engaging as possible; outfits & uniforms, crowd involvement, team chants and community integration.

The winning school will receive a $1,000 voucher to the AFL Schools Shop, and a special AFL Clinic including a visit from an AFL/AFLW player.

The winning teacher becomes the captain for a ‘Teacher Team’ that will participate in the AFL Nines at Byron event on Friday 25th & Saturday 26th October.
