Arrive 15mins early to get ya gear on and warmed up!
Come for a kick!What to expect
So Australian rules football, eh? Isn't that the sport where people throw you to the ground? Don't you have to run like a million kilometres a game? Aren't there drop bears in Australia? Most of what you have probably heard of the sport is not entirely accurate, and the other half is likely people describing rugby to you. Australian rules football is one of the most exciting and rewarding sports in the world!

Is football fun?
I'm not very fit.
Some of the best players in the league say that too! Who would have thought getting fit could be so fun!
I can't commit to every training session and game.
No problem, life happens! It's not uncommon for someone to have something come up.
I don't have a way to get to training or the games.
Our players live all over Toronto! We regularly reach out to people offering lifts to games and events.
Can I bring a friend?
I have asthma or some other condition which may affect my ability to kick 10 goals a game.
Yeah that's what they all say. But seriously be sure to bring everything you need to stay healthy and happy.
Do you guys offer health insurance?
No. You'll want to have some sort of health insurance policy before coming to training and games as people have been known to hurt themselves once or twice.
