GIRLS FOOTBALL 2018
Dear Players & Parents,
We have been overwhelmed with the response in regards to establishing Girls Football teams in 2018.
With the turnout we had at the meeting we had close to 50 girls provide us their details and are keen to play with Werribee Districts next year. It’s a great result from only having two girls registered last season.
During the off season the Committee has been attending the Women’s Football Workshop and organising apparel for next year.
It is the Club’s intention to form three teams in the current WRFL structure for 2018 and they will be U12, U15 & U18. Therefore it is critically important that we get our foundations right and set our structure that will work for our Club.
We would like to form a Girls Football Sub-Committee that will report directly to the Club Committee and help run and coordinate Girls Football for 2018. This will help form policies and adhere to the Club’s & League’s guidelines in relation the Girls Football.
Just as important is the appointments of the coaches and staff for each team. Now that we have an idea of what teams we will field we would like to appoint a Coach, Team Manager and Sports Trainer (First Aid) for each team. And before we can take the field it is a requirement to have another 6-10 volunteers to fill all of the roles on match day.
To enable us to get a better understanding of our numbers we are asking the girls to be registered on Registration Day. This date will be confirmed in January.
We are not holding trials and participation is open to all girls that fall within the age groups of the teams. Girls are welcome to and can also participate in mixed aged groups in U9’s - U14’s.
Out timeline will then be as follows:
- Form Girls Sub-Committee - late January
- Early Feb - Training will commence. Times & venues TBC
- Mid Feb - Club Registration Day will take place.
- Mar - Apr training
- Season commences 21/04
- Junior bye 09/06 (Queens B’Day)
- Final Round 28/07
- Season concludes 25/08
We have also attached the Female Football Club Guide and you are welcome to have a read and get a better understanding of Female Football.
Merry Christmas and we are looking forward to Girls football in 2018.
Thanks & regards
Werribee Districts Football Club
