Proposed Women’s Social/Modified Football format refined
Clubs heard at Women's Football Forum
The proposed women's social/modified football format competition has been refined following the feedback by clubs at the Women's Football Forum held on October 12.
Based on the feedback during the forum, the new proposal will hopefully meet the needs of these players, as well as the clubs that would like to offer this alternate pathway at their club.
The competition of 7v7 will be split into two seasons of nine rounds with games played either on Wednesday or Sunday, and teams are not required to commit to both seasons.
The state of Women's State Leagues was also discussed at the forum, covering issues with the current structure and timelines should any changes be made following further competition health checks in 2017.
Junior girls structures were also on the agenda, with age groups particularly in focus.
Provided current growth trends continue in 2017, FFV is prepared to implement single age competitions for U13 and U14 girls' football in 2018, with a view to implement Under 15 and Under 16 single age competitions by 2019 or 2020.
As with Women's State Leagues, a health check for junior girls will also be conducted in 2017.
Clubs are asked to continue to provide feedback on all aspects of female football which include, but are not limited to: player registrations, league structures, competitions, coaching, refereeing and facilities.
We believe that the feedback provided by clubs is key to the continual growth and improvement of female football in Victoria.
All correspondence should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org so it can be collated together for the Female Football Review to be held in 2017.
