Please see listed below the 2019 AFL team/squad lists for all Year 5-Open students. After further consideration the 1st team (Year 10-12) will finally be announced after the Friday 1st trial organised v St Patrick’s College next year. A number of other boys will be added to the 1st list below in the Year 10-12 group later in the week. Given this will be a fully fledged 1st team, we have decided to add an extra trial before announcing the final team.

NOTE – There will only be 1 training session per week for all AFL teams in term 1 2019. It is compulsory for all members of all AFL teams to do at least one training session for Cross Country in 2019. This will be the fitness session. Students who have clashes with other sports training must see Mr Stariha to negotiate an alternative schedule. Training times and venues TBA.
