Dodgeball

Dodgeball!? People actually play that? I thought it was just a movie! Aha, how wrong we were. It's a great workout, and a ridiculously fun way to get your bum off the couch, and keep FIT. This co-ed sport will test your endurance, stamina and skill at dodging, ducking, diving and dipping.  It is a great way to keep in shape and have a blast doing it.  Each team must have at least 2 males and females on the court at all times.

Euro Handball

Learn More

This co-ed sport is 5 a-side, with a minimum of 2 male and 2 female players on the field. We play on a small sided field, usually about 30 x 15m. Handball is simple and exciting, a hybrid of Netball and Basketball but a game that speaks for itself, with high scores and tons of action.

This co-ed sport is 6 a-side, with a minimum of 1 or 2 male and female players on the field (depending on your league’s location). We play on a half field, about 60m long and 40m wide. The game works just like on TV, your team gains yards with sometimes strategic plays, and avoids getting tagged to make the touchdown. This is Flag Football for all the North Americans looking to play ;)

The sports we play are generally a mix of Soccer, Dodgeball, Hockey, Handball, Touch, Basketball, Flag Gridiron, AFL, Oz-tag, Volleyball and Netball.

Fast5 Netball is a super fun, fast workout, with only 5 players on the court. Our 7’s leagues offer some non-traditional rule adaptions.

Softball

Touch Football

Learn More

Our Touch Footy leagues are more like Touch Rugby League. It's Touch, BUT you can drop the ball, and you can KICK on the 4th and 5th touch. HELLO, how good does that sound? This co-ed sport is 6 a-side, with a minimum of 2 male and 2 female players on the court. We play on a field which is about half of a regular size. The game honours all of the traditional touch rules, but the pop kicks, and the ability to drop the ball means both advanced, and beginner players can have a bit of extra fun.
