During the warmer months, the club holds a series of metro games as part of the Portland Australian Football League (PAFL) and the Portland Women's Australian Football League (PWAFL). For PAFL, the men of the club are split up into four local teams, the Ospreys, Loggers, Cascades, and Brewers. PWAFL consists of two teams, the Coastal Cutthroats and Dropbears. The games are played on a smaller field and with fewer players than standard Aussie rules matches. That means games are quicker, more high scoring, and give every player opportunities to get touches on the ball. Just like in the AFL, the season culminates in a Grand Final match between the top teams.
2023 SEASON UPDATE
We'll be changing things up a bit this season. Instead of set teams, we'll be creating new teams each weekend based on who shows up. Every player on the losing team will be awarded one point, while each player on the winning team will receive three points. In addition, the umpire will choose one Sockeye and one Steelhead player each week to receive two points for Best on Ground. Points will be tallied on an individual basis, and the season will culminate in a grand final between two teams made up of the highest point scorers. There will also be awards for players with the highest overall point totals, and whichever Sockeye and Steelhead player receives the most Best on Ground points throughout the season will be crowned Best and Fairest at the end of the season.
