Academy Girls Share Their Footy in Dandenong and Casey
AFL Victoria’s Youth Girls Academy members were participants in recent community events for the City of Casey and City of Greater Dandenong.
Eleven representatives from the Youth Girls Academy assisted the Dandenong District Junior Football League in promoting football and the opportunities that exist for women and girls within those municipalities. The girls, all of whom play for Youth Girls teams in the local region, ran a number of different activities that included handball drills and boundary umpire throw in games, whilst sharing their experiences as a footballer. AFL Victoria’s Youth Girls Academy members will be required this year to complete different player appearances as part of their commitment to the program and the game.
