Women in Football
Employment and Volunteering
The past 10 years has seen a steady increase in the number of women occupying the traditional male roles in football clubs as presidents, secretaries, treasurers and team managers. This is particularly the case in our junior football clubs.
Currently, there are over 164,000 female volunteers actively involved in Australian Football. Their responsibilities cover anything from acting as local AFL Auskick Coordinators, to coaching and assisting with training drills.
Recognising that women make up a vitally important percentage of club volunteers and administrators, AFL Victoria offers education programs and training to the community in eight key learning areas:
Football Operations, Financial Management , Committee Management, Planning, Risk Management , Volunteer Management Community Partnerships and Junior Development.
