UPDATE: Women’s footy training Mondays & Thursdays 6.15pm @ Cooper Reserve, Camberwell.
More players are still needed. Share this around and bring your friends!
As part of Canterbury’s community engagement and broader sporting growth that has seen us spread in the past couple of years from a men’s footy team, to multiple mixed and women’s netball teams, and mixed AFL 7s teams, we have notified the VAFA of our intention to field a women’s team which will launch in the inaugural VAFA Women’s competition in 2017.
Canterbury has always had a strong women’s supporter base, with many of our committee executive roles held by women for many years – in fact, we had the first entirely female executive in the SFL in the early 2000’s. Now we are joining the VAFA in getting the girls on-field!
Already a number of women have expressed their interest in playing for Canterbury, however, the Club still needs to recruit a reasonable number of more players to field a women’s team for the whole 2017 season. Successfully recruiting significantly more players over the next two months will be paramount to whether our women’s team is able to compete in 2017.
With the New Year a distant memory and January nearly done, we need your support so are reaching out to you, our past, present and future (junior) communities to put yourselves, your family or friends forward to join the team. Experience, skill or fitness will not be a barrier to anyone interested in getting involved.
Please contact John, Sally or Kirsten on the numbers below to find out more or put yourself forward.
