The popularity of women's football has exploded in the last few years and here at the Grovedale Tigers, we are incredibly proud of our women's program.
Our female representation has grown from one team 4 years ago through to four teams in 2017, when we fielded an under 19 team, an under 15 team and 2 under 12 teams. The highlight of 2017 was under 19 team making the Grand Final in division two.
Due to the success of our female football program, there was never any doubt that as soon as AFL Barwon announced that they would be commencing a Senior Women’s Competition in our region in 2018, Grovedale would field a senior women’s team in the inaugural year.
In 2018, our female football department was headed by Kythie Fisher who has been a driving force of our program for the past 4 years. She was joined by Ben O’Regan, the Senior Coach of our Women’s Football Team. We're thrilled that our senior team played finals in their first year and we look forward to an even bigger and better season next year.
