The introduction of a women’s league into the AFL combined with a league that has been expanding nationally via organic growth, we are seeing more women involved in the game than ever before - It has never been a better time to get involved with footy. At "The Fields" we believe that women's football is a natural extension of what our club is all about as we have always valued the role that women have played in the development of our club. We are and always have been an "inclusive" environment.
Women's football is a great way for girls and women to make friends, keep active and learn new skills. Women's football continues to grow at a rapid rate, meaning accessing a single gender team locally is easier than ever. In our inaugural year in 2017 Caulfield Grammarians Football Club played in the VAFA’s Premier Division and finished 5th just out side the four. In 2018 we rea fielding a seniors and reserves team in Premier Division to accomodate the increasing interest in womens football and the recognition of the quality program offered by the club.
We are proud and passionate about empowering women to become involved across the sporting community having introduced a netball team in 2016. We would love to see the sisters of existing players, daughters of past players and their friends get involved in this new and exciting development. We are also working closely with the school because as soon as the women's football subject was put on the agenda by the AFL the schoolgirls were on to us.
Whether it’s footy or netball, whether you’re a seasoned pro or have no experience at all, or just want to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
