Double number of women, girls register to play footy

THE number of girls and women registered for the upcoming winter football competition has doubled compared with this time last year.

Bankstown District Amateur Football Association (BDAFA) General Manager Leanne Millar says there is no better time to play women’s football than in Bankstown in 2021.
“We have ladies specific competitions including All Girls SSF competitions in 6/7s and 8/9s on Saturdays, All Girls SSF competitions in 10/11s on Sundays, Girls Competitive Ages groups including 13s, 15s and 17/18s on Sundays, and All Age Ladies competitions on Sundays,” she said.
“We are all excited to be back for the 2021 season; early numbers show a big increase in our registrations across the board.
“For the 2021 winter season, BDAFA will be rebating our clubs $50 per girl registered in an All Girls team within our girls small sided football competition.
“We’re also excited to announce we will be running an Under 21s competition which will allow for players to bridge the gap between Under 18s and All Age Men’s Football.”
Some of the local clubs have varying needs though players of all ages are being urged to register: North Bankstown SC requires players for Premier League including a goalkeeper; Milperra Lions FC requires players for Grade 12; and Birrong Sports FC requires players for 14 Div 1 Boys and Grade 10/11 Girls.
