The ‘AFL Cup’ is an Inter School competition  for Junior (Years 9-10) and Senior (Years 11-13) students based on fundamental movement and ball skills of AFL for boys and girls.

The programme provides introductory sessions and resources presented by qualified AFL New Zealand Staff to introduce a new and dynamic sport to students. The skills of ‘Kick, Catch, Pass and Bounce’ are perfectly matched to cross reference any number of sports. The 9 a side format is suitable for rugby size fields and with three reserves per team, team numbers are easy to coordinate.
NZSSSC 1AFL New Zealand is sanctioned by New Zealand Secondary School Sports Council and appears in their calendar. All schools are provided with the opportunity to participate in localised cluster day tournaments that ensure both travel and time commitments are minimized. The AFL Cup culminates in North Island and South Island Championships with Seniors held in Term 1 and Juniors Term 4, every year.
