Competition Rules: A precis for 2023 season
All Senior grades will be playing 17 minute quarters this year with a 2 minute break at quarter time and 5 minutes at half time. In order to keep games to time, at grounds where there are scoreboards the clock will be set to automatically start the time. It will be umpire time at other turfs but in all cases teams will be given a 30 second warning and need to make sure they take the field promptly.
Grades are open for 12 team competitions, enabling movement of teams from divisions without Promotion/Relegation.
Grade formats will be confirmed following team entries, but each grade will comprise 1 x full round robin, then being spilt into a top ‘Championship’ half/bottom ‘Plate’ half round robin, followed by a one 3 week finals format. Total = 17 games for the season (COVID excepted).
You may also refer to the AHA website for any updates.
