The Old Paradians' Association Amateur Football Club is excited to announce the fielding of a women's football team for the first time in season 2017.
This team will cater for women from the ages of 16 and over to compete in a new Victorian Amateur Football Association women's competition (VAFA).
The VAFA women's competition is looking at:
o 12 rounds with 3 finals
o Playing on a Sunday afternoon ranging from 12 noon - 3pm
o 20 minute quarters
Old Paradians Amateur Football Club is a very strong family orientated club with a proud history. We have a strong affiliation with the Parade/St Damians Junior Football Club and the Old Paradians/ St Francis Cricket Club.
This wonderful female sporting opportunity creates important health, social, gender balance, inclusiveness and equity benefits for all women and girls wanting to be involved in sport, in particular Australian Rules Football. Having females involved in sport is not only great for the individual, but more broadly for our Football club, the Association and the community as a whole.
There is still a lot of work to be done to achieve this start up team in 2017 and our Club is committed to ensuring we are not only fielding the side next year but for many years to come.
To help make this historic step become a reality we are asking for any interested players, aspiring Coaches (Female or Male), Volunteer's, Sponsors, Officials, etc., to make contact with myself by mobile on 0418 321 985 or by email - email@example.com
We will continue to keep everyone updated on this exciting venture over the coming weeks.
