Hi all

Posting this on behalf of the administration of the VSFL

The Victorian Social Football League (VSFL inc.), previously known as the Rusty and Unfit Football League (RUFL) is a Casual Aussie Rules Football League that gives everyone a go. With a game every three weeks and no training it gives those with families, Weekend Jobs, and the time poor the chance to continue or learn to play the game we love. We open our doors to players that are unfit, unskilled and those that have never played the game before, to be able to enjoy playing in a competitive environment without the worry of committing to two training sessions and a game every week.

We have a MeetUp site setup for any potential new players wanting to have a go - http://www.meetup.com/Victorian-Social-Football-League/

Personally, I have been a member of the Purple Knights since their inception in 2013. It is a great little league with a ethos on having fun and having a crack without having to worry about coming up against guys wanting to king hit that you sometimes encounter in the lower leagues. If you want to have a go, send me a PM, or goto the MeetUp site above.

More info on the league is available on their website - www.vsfl.org

Thanks

Sounds just like me, unfit, unskilled and never played the game before. Unfortunately I live in rural NSW, my bloody luck. Would you know if there is anything like it in NSW?
Thank you.

Clubs are made up of mainly randoms. Given colours instead of suburb names. Games played in Lalor

Ok so it's in one cetralised place, i like that. Do you all play on the same day?

The way to get more people involved would be to add localities or at least general area names, i can see this league having a lot of teams in the next 5 years.

Yep, all play on the same day. 3 games per round every 3rd weekend. There are 6 teams all up and I think they are looking to expand (or were at least)

Can't comment on the area names. May be right, not sure..

Anymore updates on this Mr_Smooth

Scores, etc.
yep, last weekend rd 2 was played

Purple Knights def White Ice 65-34
Red Devils def Green Rangers (the new expansion team) 62-32
Don't have a final score from the Blue Evolution - Black Magic game, but Blue Evo were leading 37-33 at 3/4 time

Highlights videos should be up in the next week. Will post them again

Also, the Green Rangers (the new team) nearly had a full team this week. If you are looking for a game, it's not too late. Friendly atmosphere, family freindly, cheap food and drink available

Is there any cost? What time are the games on? Do you have a run down on dates?

There are costs, can't speak for the other clubs, but at the Knights we pay $120 for the season. That covers expenses like ground hire, public liability, umpires etc. The schedule and times for games is at the VSFL website. http://www.vsfl.org/

Any news on whether the sides will take on location or not?

Maybe the Design board could help out with some awesome logos to spruce the website up.

One other suggestion mate.

A history page, there's no info on who did what and where.


A shame they don't want to go with locations but at least they have that identity as well as colours.
