The offseason period for the UTSAFC Committee has been a busy one, with a lot of strategic planning occurring to develop the future direction of the club.

We’re in the process of establishing a new club constitution that will highlight the values and culture of the club as we move forward as a merged mens and womens AFL club. We’re creating a specific culture sub-committee to take on this initiative. Our leadership groups will also be taking on a stronger involvement in the future direction and culture of the club. We welcome members of the club who are passionate about the re-brand to join the sub-committee and assist in pathing a strong future for the UTSAFC.

We’re extremely excited about the 2020 season and we're confident that together we can create an incredible AFL club.
