The Adelaide Football Club is a significant supporter of female football in South Australia.
The Club is implementing new initiatives to support the growth and development of female participation. The aim is to engage all age groups in schools and the community, while creating opportunities for young talented female athletes to pursue their dream of playing AFL for the Crows.
SCHOOL GIRLS FOOTBALL CARNIVALS (CROWS CUP)
The ‘Crows Cup’ is a one day interschool girls only football carnival aimed at encouraging young girls to give football a go in a fun and safe environment. The Crows Cup also promotes the benefits of physical activity, introduces positive role models and introduces participants to the female football pathway in South Australia.
Each SANFL zone will be delivering a Year 5-7 Crows Cup Carnival. The winner of each carnival will then be invited to play in an AFL curtainraiser round robin late in term 2. Stay tuned for a Year 8/9 Girls carnival in Term 3 2017.
INTRA SCHOOL GIRLS FOOTBALL PROGRAM
The Crows are currently offering a 5x session ‘Crows Female Football Program’ for primary and secondary schools, to enhance knowledge of the game, off-field education sessions and the skills required. Students will have an opportunity to meet Adelaide Crows Women’s Players. Age Group: Year 4 - Year 12. Schools can register their interest in either of these programs:
Rookies Program – The Crows Female Rookie Program is an introductory level. Participants will learn the Skills and Rules of the game through fun game based activities and run their own football tournament based around the SEPEP model.
