PLAYER WELFARE - YOUTH GIRLS
Southern Power AFC is committed to providing all players a safe and enjoyable environment to play football. We understand that factors outside of football can have an impact on a player’s enjoyment and performance on the field. For this reason we have created the Power Player Welfare Committee who are experienced in managing people and can provide players with a fully confidential avenue to discuss their off-field life should they feel they need such contact.
The club has created a welfare officer role for the 2021 season which is currently available to youth girls members. We view the wellbeing of our members as a priority and are hoping to expand this to be available to senior players soon.
Contact is Kylie McNair / Deanna Ireland or to ask the YG committee generalised questions please email email@example.com
WHY IS HAVING A WELFARE COMMITTEE BENEFICIAL?
An alternative point of contact to manager or coach;
Help induct our younger and newer players and support girls transition from Youth to Womens.
Consider implementation of a buddy system when players are moving from Youth to senior teams;
Check-in on the wellbeing of players injured or suffering from illness, and together with the coach and manager, keep them involved in the club and team.
Keep team updated on injured players via Medical Officer;
Be present and accessible at training and on game day;
Liaise with AFL Community Officers if needed;
Together with the manager organise social gatherings
