Female football is growing quickly within Tasmania, with participation in female only or mixed competitions occurring throughout Tasmania and across all age groups from Auskick, junior girls, youth girls and into senior competition.
Increasingly, girls are choosing football as their sport of choice over other mainstream sports as it provides both a talent and participation pathway and for many girls, an opportunity to challenge themselves physically in a highly skilled and tactical game, as well as providing a pathway to the new AFL Women’s national competition.
Any girls interested in playing football can find more information about their nearest club and teams by contacting AFL Tasmania:
