AFL9’s Womens Footy Kicks off in Alice

31st May 2012

Last Friday night saw the start of this year’s AFL9’s women’s footy at Traegar Park.

This year there are more teams (8 registered teams) and a great representation from community teams, Hermannsburg and Santa Teresa

Andy Hood, Regional Manager, AFL Central says the long term goal is that “each of the town clubs has their own women’s team and we eventually get representative footy to the level it needs to be”….and he says they are on track to achieve this.

It will run over a ten week period…with the grand final held on Saturday 8th of September.

The matches start from 5:30pm Friday night at the Traeger Park Baseball Oval.
