With the success of our first Women’s finals appearance behind us, we have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure we maintain the momentum and grow our women’s program, to what we believe can be one of the best in the area. follow us on Instagram @shedevil_footy for all the latest info.
The #SheDevils Pre Season Development Program has been formed to continue to develop the girls skills over the off season and provide them with the opportunity to fast track their learning. The girls who played last year are eager to get back into it and we also encourage girls of all ages and ability to come down and join the SheDevils.
We focus on creating an environment and culture that the girls just loved being a part of and want to make footy fun, a place where everyone could feel comfortable, be social and get fit. The buy in from the girls was outstanding.
The Program will be run by club legend Marcus Barclay who has been working hard behind the scenes to develop his knowledge of women’s football, he understands the subtle differences between the men’s and women’s game and has set the program out to work on specific skills relevant to the girls improvement. We understand its important to have a streamline learning process across the board from the U9 girls right through to the seniors. We want them all learning the same skills and style of play, and that is why we encourage all girls from age 10 and above to be part of the program.
The Program wont just be looking at Ball Skills, there will be specific sessions focusing on protecting the head and body, bracing yourself for impact and falling, along with a special educational session on ACL injury prevention. We are also working hard to secure some AFL and AFLW stars to come down and be apart of the #SheDevils, stay tuned for this information to be released.
Keilor Park Football Club will now be a place where females can thrive playing AFL.
