Female football policy

Girls in mixed youth teams… the best way to develop your all-round footy skills and attributes. This is our advised route into footy for all ages from pre-school to senior school. The mixed youth teams are run by our partner organisation Sporting 87 FC.

Girls in our mixed youth Academy advanced coaching for advanced results; focus on your individual technique and thinking. Complement your team footy with additional sessions that take you further and prepare you for professional academy trials.

Girls doing their own thing… some children and parents prefer a female focused environment. We understand that football games inevtiably involve a certain amount of agressive competition and some girls find it difficult to challenge boys in this way. That’s why we also provide high quality girls-only opportunities and experiences for you to enjoy and help you develop your game. Our partner organisation Sporting 87 FC not only runs girls-only teams, but the Sporting Trust also runs a weekly girls-only 5-a-side competition and girls only Footy Tiger sessions for school years 1 to 4.

Ladies doing their own thing… at age 18 the game is gender separate. Although Sporting 87 FC currently doesn’t run a traditional women’s 11-a-side team, Ladies’ Futsal sessions (5-a-side) are run by the Sporting Trust.
