New Women’s Team

12th November, 2009

Southern Power AFC is very excited to announce that we will now have a women’s side competing in the Sydney Womens AFL League in 2010.

The Southern Power AFL club is based at Gwawley Park – Cnr Taren Point & Box Rds, Caringbah; however most of the women’s matches are played at Mahoney Oval in Marrickville on Saturdays.

At this stage we have not decided on a training day but this will likely be on a Monday evening and possibly a Thursday evening once or twice a month in the Sutherland area.

The women’s AFL season won’t start until around March 2010 and preseason will likely be sometime in February.

Please feel free to pass our details on to any other women (aged 15 years and over) you think may be interested in playing AFL with us in 2010 and beyond.

If you have any questions please contact Gary (Coach) on 0410 017 858 or Janine (Team Manager) on 0421 370 798, otherwise email and one of us will get back to you.

In the meantime, keep yourself updated with the latest news by joining the Southern Power AFC Facebook Group.


How old do I have to be to play?

Any female aged 15 and over can play.

How experienced do I have to be?

We welcome all new comers to the team. We have players with all levels of experience and they are always happy to assist new players with skills, rules etc.

When and where are the games played?

Games are played predominately each Saturday in Marrickville. Some games are also played at each team’s home ground throughout the year.

When and where are the training sessions held?

At this stage training will almost certainly be Monday nights somewhere in the Sutherland area and every 2nd or 3rd Thursday. We are unsure of the grounds as yet as we are still organising this with the club and local council.

When does pre-season training start?

February 2010

When does the season proper start?

Season 2009 started in April and ended in August, however 2010 has extra teams joining so the season will most likely be extended.

How much are the registration fees?

As we are joining a new club in 2010 we can’t confirm the fees yet however in 2009 we paid $250.00 which included; basic insurance, umpire fees, uniform, polo shirt and cap. The fees for 2010 may vary and we won’t know for a little while yet.

We apologise for the lack of details however with a new club and a new season to commence all details are still to be confirmed, so watch this space!

I’m interested in playing, how do I find out more information?
