Junior GIRLS Membership for the 2019 Season

In season 2019 we are planning to expand with an Under 10 GIRLS ONLY team entered into the Western Region Football League (WRFL). In 2018 the WRFL was host to 2,405 football matches by 33 Football Clubs, 226 Junior Teams and 8,424 players. In 2019 the WRFL will be starting a new Under 10s Girls AFL competition. As we already have many girls mixing it with the boys, we will be stepping up to Girls ONLY. The Ascot Vale Panthers Juniors and Flemington Junior Football Clubs are joining together for the 2019 season. Both clubs are joining forces to build an Under 10 junior girls football program with a specific focus on FUN, FRIENDSHIP and FITNESS.

Modified rules for Girls under 10 Girls

  • All junior games are conducted with an emphasis on fun, involvement, learning of skills and good sportsmanship.

  • Ground size will be limited to approximately half of the oval and divided into 3 ‘zones’ for play

  • There is no tackling for under 10 girls (no bumping, stealing the ball, barging or smothering)

  • Scores shall not be recorded and no premiership points awarded

  • Each time a goal is scored by either team, play will be restarted with a player of the team that did not score the goal given possession in the centre circle

  • The coach is allowed on the ground during play for the sole purpose of providing immediate feedback to players

  • Players should be rotated every quarter, eg. centres, backs, forwards to ensure all players, irrespective of ability, are given sufficient time on the playing field to experience the game and achieve a sense of involvement.

For the 2019 season the membership fees are as follows:
$170 membership for first year players to the club: includes socks, shorts, Panthers sports bag and 2019 Panthers training top
$50 ‘Try Footy’ membership: for girls who haven’t played footy and want to give it a try. Includes a new 2019 Panthers training top and can be upgraded to a full membership later by paying the difference once they love it!
