Panthers Junior GIRLS Football for 2019
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.
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 Walter Street Reserve
Only limited tackling so a player cannot be taken to the ground in the act of tackling
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
No bumping, slinging or deliberately bringing the opposition player to the ground
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.

$190 membership for returning players: includes a new 2019 Panthers training top
