Everywhere you look in Queensland, female footy is booming, and the QWAFA looks set for it’s biggest year yet in 2016.
A massive ten new teams have registered an expression of interest for next year.
Combine that with all six teams from 2015 playing again, and the competition numbers look set to spike.
The Queensland Women’s Amateur Football Association (QWAFA) is a female AFL competition for new and developing players.
QWAFA provides females the opportunity to learn the game, play socially, or develop their skills before moving into the QWAFL, the Queensland female state league competition.
With a proposed National Women’s League set for 2017, interest surrounding the female football space is sky high.
With over 58,000 female school football participants, the QWAFA provides a direct pathway into club land for players of all experience levels.
Women’s Football Community Club Development Manager, Fiona Jones, said it is fantastic to see the competition grow like it has in such a short time.
“2015 was a great year for the QWAFA competition, but it’s even more pleasing to see the interest surrounding next season from a lot of clubs,” she said.
“With the National Women’s League looking like coming in for 2017, it’s exciting to see the interest that it’s creating at grass roots level.
“The QWAFA competition is designed to give opportunity to everyone who wants to play football at club level, and the opportunity to pull on the boots and have a bit of fun has never been higher.”
Ipswich, Aspley, Noosa, Coolangatta-Tweed and Kedron have all expressed their interest in fielding a QWAFA team in 2016 and are looking for players. They can be contacted HERE
