WAFC Female Football Coordinator Allana Dickie said it is important new female participants are provided the the best opportunities to get involved in footy.

“These events will allow new participants to connect with their local Auskick centre and club,” she said.

“There are female football competitions for all ages and abilities, and it is fantastic to have the support of AFLW Fremantle to promote the talent pathway available for all girls and especially players aspiring to play at the elite level.”
