Depending on ability and time a player can commit to playing football, female players aged 13-19 (Grades 13-19) can choose to play in either girls only teams or mixed (90% boys) teams following either the Social or Academy pathway, with the option to change teams / pathways each season.
Our social pathway provides the opportunity for players to play in teams largely based on player preferences (e.g. play with specific friends, in a previous team, etc) and with a commitment to one training per week plus a game. 13th Grade players may also choose to register and attend Skill Centre training as a second weekly training.
For female players following the Social pathway once they are too old for U19 grade, it is anticipated that they would either move into one of our existing Senior Women’s Teams or form their own new Senior Women’s Team.
Academy pathway provides players with potential the opportunity to train with the best coaches and train and play against the best players in their age group from across the region. Players following this pathway must be able to commit to 2-3 (depends upon team) training sessions a week plus a game, and must attend Player ID sessions in February (mixed teams) or muster day(s) (for girls only teams) in February to be considered for an Academy Team.
For female players following the Academy pathway once they are too old for U16 grade, it is anticipated that they would move into the Premier Women’s or Development squads.
