The SAFL is conducted under the USAFL Amendments to the Laws, which are equivalent to the Laws of Australian Football, as governed by the Australian Football League (AFL), with minor variations.

SacAFL Specific Rules

1. Games are preferably 10-a-side, however this can be modified depending on our numbers. 8-a-side is the minimum and 12-a-side is the maximum.

2. Two pods will be combined each week to form a team to play another team of two combined pods. Pods will be combined with different pods each week.

3. Points will be allocated in this way for the WOMEN'S league:

  • 2 points for a win if a pod contributes 4 or more players.
  • 1 point if a pod contributes 2-3 players.
  • -1 point for a pod that brings less than 2 players, win or lose.
