Club makes pitch for female players
ROCKINGHAM United Women’s and Girls (W&G) football club has provided aspiring female footballers a place to train and play in an all-female friendly environment – the first club of its kind in the region.
Paul Garnett Reserve in Cooloongup is the home of the club.
The Under-6 to Senior female footballers learn new skills and build new friendships through participation in the club.
Rockingham United W&G FC vice-president Corey House said the club had a primary focus on promoting and developing female footballers.
“There’s enough clubs doing the boys so we stay away from that,” he said.
“We want to get an awareness out there that there is a home for female footballers in Rockingham where they can train and play away from the boys, feel comfortable, learn new skills and most importantly have fun.”
The club also caters for young boys through to the Miniroos phase.
Pre-season training for the Senior Women’s team starts on January 17 and the Junior Girls team on February 17. The football season kicks off in April.
