VAFA Women’s invited to AFLW High Performance Camp

Posted on - Latest News

VAFA senior coaching pair, Paul Groves and Shane Joyce, are offering women’s players the chance to train and develop their skills in an elite environment through the first-ever AFLW High Performance Camp.

Taking place at Wesley College’s Glen Waverley Campus from July 3-5, the live-in camp will offer women the chance to be mentored by current AFLW players and will be headed by Level 3 AFL High Performance Coaches.

It will feature elite testing by AFL affiliate Rookie Me, who will conduct the official testing on day one.

“The live-in camp will provide the participants an opportunity to experience the structure of an AFL Women’s program,” Bulldogs AFLW senior coach and former Monash Blues mentor Paul Groves told Girls Play Footy.

“Areas to be covered include testing by Rookie Me, skill development, game play, education on all aspects of being an elite player, and key note speakers.

“Using the elite facilities at Wesley College, we hope that the environment for the girls to improve and show us their athletic ability, football skills and personal character will be like no other.

“The pathways for young females are continually developing and our recruiting team will be on hand to provide assistance about what AFLW clubs are looking for in the draft.”

The Western Bulldogs have two rookie spots available heading into the 2018 AFLW season, providing the ideal platform for those VAFA women hoping to take the next step in their football journey.

The camp has been designed for women aged between 14-23 and registrations close June 19. For more information, please see the flyer below:
