Female Football

St Mary’s has had three successful seasons of female football in the AFL Barwon League.  We have had 150 females participate across U12s, U15s, U18s and Seniors in 2019 and expanded our teams to five, including a second senior female team. In 2020 we are looking to consolidate our female football program and build on fundamental strength, conditioning, injury prevention and football skills relevant to each age group.   

We have engaged experienced and skilled coaches, trainers and team managers to look after these teams and steer them to achieve a healthy and happy sporting environment for young women to play football.

In 2020 St Mary’s will field teams in the following age groups:

  • Seniors (aged 18 or over by 1st January)
  • Under 18
  • Under 15
  • Under 12

Our program, starting at U12s, provides a great avenue for any girl who strives to chase the elite pathway through to VFLW and AFLW but is equally a great opportunity for someone just wanting to try a new sport.  Limited skills and/or fitness are not a barrier to start playing or being part of our club as a sportsperson, volunteer and club member. Given female football is in its early stages of development in our region, we encourage any young girls and women to come and give footy a go and be a part of this amazing period in women’s sport.
