Female Football Week 2018

Delivered to coincide with International Women’s Day on 8th March, Female Football Week (FFW) is a nationwide initiative that celebrates the growth of women’s football and acknowledges the important role women play in developing the game both on and off the park. It’s a time for the Victorian Football Community to bring focus to an area of the game that provides football with its greatest growth opportunity.

The national campaign commences on International Women's Day (March 8) and will run across two weekends, ending on March 11.

Please find the opportunities available during FFW below.  A brochure regarding the opportunities available can be downloaded HERE.

FEMALE ADMINISTRATOR MENTOR PROGRAM

In 2018, we are offering 24 women from the football administration community an opportunity to participate in a Female Administrator Mentor Program. This year, we have partnered with Carol Fox (carolfox.com.au) who provides leadership and effective communication training to the sporting and other industries. The cost of the program, although heavily subsidised by the FFV and Change Our Game, is $200, payable by the club or participant.

In this six-month program (April-September) you will be partnered up with a mentor that will help you deliver a project of your choice for your club that will have a positive impact on your football or wider community. Outside of your regular one-on-one meetings with your mentor you will participate in three workshops with Carol Fox training you in how to be a confident communicator and leader and three sessions with the FFV and your mentors working on your project deliverables. The final session will be a celebratory dinner where all mentees get the opportunity to present their projects to the group. Another important aspect of this course is the networking opportunities available for you to engage with other female football administrators and the outstanding mentors contributing their time.

To express your interest for the FFV Female Administrator Mentor Program, complete the form at HERE.

Expression of Interest applications close on Monday, 19 March 2018 and recipients of the sponsored positions will be notified by email by Friday, 23 March 2018.
