Australian Football League, Known as AFL Or Aussie rules, is a sport that Pt england school is Learning this term. Tim is our instructor and our coach, there is also some other teachers at AFL but he’s the best Instructor.  We Learnt a lot of skills including The Ice Cream scoop, the punt and our Catching techniques like the Chest catch, the speckie catch and the jump and catch one. AFL Is one of the most paid & played sport in australia. Aussie rules is very different too League or Rugby union, especially the goalposts and the points.

AFL was first founded in 1858, there are 2,659 Clubs in australia. To tackle you could just tackle them or hop on their shoulder with all your wait to shut them down. There are 12 bounces you do with the ball because you need to pass it to get to the goal but you’re only allowed 17 walks so you have to be strategic. In total there are 790,905 players in the world at the moment. WE were taught aussie rules when we were Yr5 ! AFL is a very fun sport for kids and their fitness, I Recommand AFL to every one.
