Sydney AFL Masters


Welcome to the Sydney Rocks AFL Masters club; Australian Rules Football for mature footballers aged 32 years and over. Masters football caters for those who love the game and still have a desire to keep playing. Be it beginner or experienced player, all are welcome.

Intra-club games occur fortnightly followed by a barbecue and refreshments. The Carnivals for all NSW clubs are an enjoyable challenge culminating in the end of season National Carnival.  

If you'd like to join, head to NSW-ACT AFL Masters page for details and be invigorated by the ensuing game of football. more -->

Playing costs are cheap compared to other sporting codes:

  • $120 registration covering the cost of National & NSW AFL Affiliation Fees, public liability insurance, and club costs such as ground hire, lighting, footballs, jumpers, umpires.
  • $10 game day fee provides for umpires, presentation trophies and the family barbecue.

AFL Masters is not as rigorous as club football, with the general theme being 'footy for fun'. It provides players with the opportunity to be physically active and continue to play the game they love.

Several rules are introduced to reduce injury such as one-on-one ruck work, no knees or protective legs allowed in rucking/marking, no shirtfronts or slinging tackles, with common sense and consideration always expected around older players.

As with any mature age physical activity, before starting talk with your doctor. A physical examination can spot potential problems or weaknesses that may affect your participation. Masters AFL is a lot safer and can be played at your own pace, however private health insurance is a recommended precaution along with income protection.

Importantly, enjoy the game and welcome to Sydney Rocks AFL Masters.
