Women's AFL 9's competition prepares to kick off at Curtin

[Posted: 8 Jul 2016]

A brand new Women's AFL 9's competition will kick off on July 27 at South Oval, Curtin University.

Coordinated by the West Australian Football Commission and Curtin Stadium, the 10 week, female-only competition is a great opportunity for anyone to try out the social, non-contact sport.

The competition is open to all female participants and they do not have to be affiliated with Curtin.

WAFC Competitions Officer Tim Marley says the aim of the competition is to increase participation levels to the point where they have a strong female division competition in the AFL 9's centres.

"By running this competition we want to increase the understanding and skills of the game and eventually get to a point where participants can put together their own team of 9-12 players," he says.

"They can then enter their own team into a Female Division of AFL 9's and play in a well-organised competition against other teams; similar to playing in a social netball competition."

The season will run on Wednesdays at 6pm.

Emily Johnston will run the competition on the night and umpire the games.

Teams will be formed on the night.
