Castlemaine Girls – showing their skills
It’s an exciting time, with the popularity of football exploding in our region and across Australia, for both boys and girls. In what has been a historically male dominated space, the game is changing and so are the opportunities for our female players.
Girls have long been welcomed to play in the mixed competition, and over the years we have had many girls and women play through our club, but while playing ‘mixed’ is fine for some, it does not suit everyone. We currently have girls playing in mixed teams across several of the older age groups, and it will still be offered as an option. (See Izzy’s story below.)
This year we entered our first all girls U11 team into the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League All Girls competition, and we expect to expand the girls teams into different age groups in the 2018 seasons. Let us know if you are interested.
Thursday nights in Term 4 we will run an 8 week all girls indoor training program, to boost skills and confidence, and to have fun.
Contact Kathryn Hall, Junior Coordinator for more information or to register interest.
