The Coolbinia Bombers are proud to be able to offer Perth’s only unique and complete female football pathway from Auskick (Pre-primary) level right through to our Youth Girls (Years 7 to 9) team. We aim to provide an environment where young female footballers can play AFL football and sequentially develop their skills through training activities, games, match rules and conditions, regardless of skill level and experience, in a safe, fun and community-friendly spirit.
In excess of 200,000 females now play Australian Football across Australia and this is expected to grow significantly with the inaugural National AFL Women’s competition in 2017. The AFL has committed to launching a national women’s competition, which present an amazing opportunity for female athletes to compete at the highest level. Any young girl who joins through our Bomberettes Auskick program has the opportunity to make it all the way to women’s representative football, or just as importantly, become the next amateur player, umpire, coach or fan of the game.
Coolbinia Bombers looks forward to it’s future female stars competing at this level and has provided an exclusive female football framework and pathway to progress through the club.
Bomberettes (Pre-primary to Year 3)
The Bomberettes are a standalone girls team as part of our Auskick centre, and a great introduction to girls of all skills and ability to join in (without those annoying boys around!). The NAB AFL Auskick program provides a safe and friendly environment to introduce players to the skills and rules of AFL Football.
Junior Girls (Year 4 – 6)
After progressing through Bomberettes, the girls and new members can our Junior Girls progress to a modified AFL rules format. The Junior Girls train once a week and play a season of home and away games against other female teams. The emphasis is on skill and teamwork development all in a safe, fun environment specifically geared towards building female athletes.
Youth Girls (Year 7 – 9)
The Youth Girls is playing to full AFL rules for girls of Years 7 to 9 against other girl’s teams throughout the Perth metro area. Often a very free-flowing game, the Youth Girls is built on developing football skills, teamwork and also football smarts (something much easier to teach girls than boys!).
