It was fantastic to see how much excitement and interest there was for the AFLW competition last weekend. It was especially fantastic to see AFL Barwon’s most recent Female Football Ambassador Lily Mithen stand her own against the countries best players.
Female football is growing in our region with there being plenty of opportunities for girls of all ages. In 2017, AFL Barwon will be having Under 12’s, Under 15’s, Under 19’s and possibly two teams competing in the AFL Goldfields open age competition. Unfortunately we couldn’t generate enough interest to start our own open age competition in 2017 but we have definite plans to start our own competition in 2018.
If you are interested in playing open age football in 2017, please contact Steve Jansen from North Geelong on 0429 544 475 who will be able to assist you with training times and club information.
If you are looking for a club in the Under 12’s, Under 15’s or Under 19’s or have any questions in general about female football please feel free to contact either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and they will be able to assist you.
