Thandi McAllister and Tobsha Haig

Brunswick Heads junior AFL footballers, Thandi (15 years old) and Tobsha (14) need more players to join so they can get a team going this year.

AFL is a great way to get outside, make friends and gain skills.

For the past few years, local clubs have been putting together girl’s teams to build confidence in themselves and the game.

Last year, after an amazing season, the Brunswick Valley Bulldogs U/13 girls rose to the top and won the grandfinal. 

They are hoping to get a full U/15’s girl’s team together this year so they can continue playing. 

‘Brunswick is such a welcoming club to be part of’ say the girls, ‘each person supports the next and we are always putting in our best efforts and having a load of fun.

‘We love each club having a team because it creates a sense of diversity in the competition and allows us to play different teams each week.’ 

Keeping female footy alive is important because it allows all girls to stay involved in the game as well as maintaining fitness and having fun.

‘It doesn’t matter if you have never played footy before, you can learn along the way and we have an awesome, supportive group of girls!’

You can get involved by signing up online at www.brunsbulldogsafl.org.

Or by coming to training, which is every Wednesday night from 4pm to 5pm at Stan Thompson Oval in Brunswick Heads.
