Crows AFLW players are heading to the Spencer Gulf for the first AFLW Community Camp.

The AFL has run annual Community Camps since 2003, with teams heading to regional communities across Australia throughout the pre-season.

AFLW clubs will take part in the Community Camp program for the first time this year, giving players the opportunity to give back to women and girls in regional communities.

Adelaide, thanks to the support of its co-major sponsor Workskil Australia, will spend two days engaging with Port Pirie locals on Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5.

Players will spend the first day visiting schools in the region, delivering clinics and engaging with students.

Children aged 5-15 years can meet their AFLW heroes and learn some new skills at the Crows Community Clinic at Port Pirie Oval on Thursday at 4.15pm. Participants must register to attend here.

Crows fans will also get the chance to see the squad in action, with an Open Training Session to be held at Port Pirie Oval on Friday (July 5) at 9am.

After training, players will be available for photos and signatures.

“It’s really important to support the growth of women’s football in regional areas and our trip to Port Pirie is a big part of that,” Head of Women’s Football Phil Harper said.

“We want our team to get out and meet as many people in regional SA as possible. 

“The AFL have run the Community Camp program for many years now, so it’s great that our AFLW players will have the same opportunity to engage with our country members and fans as our AFL players have done.

“Across the two days, we are hosting a range of events for the community, so we encourage everyone to come out and get involved.”
