2020 Female Football Seasons Cancelled
Unfortunately, it has become clear as a result of club responses and ongoing developments in the Covid-19 pandemic environment that all Senior Women’s, Youth Girls and Junior Girls football competitions will be abandoned for 2020.
In the RDFNL and BFNL Junior and Youth Girls Football competitions respectively, responses were insufficient from clubs expressing a desire to continue with the season to make it a viable option.
Additionally with the AFL Goldfields Senior Women’s competition, consisting of a mix of clubs from both the eastern and western ends of the AFL Goldfields region, it would not be in the interests of the health and wellbeing of all to proceed with a season in the current environment, which is seeing an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases.
Thank you to all clubs who have continued to work with their members over the past four months attempting to get a season to happen in 2020. Your work as volunteers, along with the stresses and uncertainty which you have had to deal with, was clearly not what you expected when you took on the role for this year.
Some of your teams may still continue to train over coming weeks enjoying the opportunity to undertake physical activities in groups with their teammates.
Again, thank you to each of our contacts for your efforts and we are now looking towards how Female Football within the AFL Goldfields region can be re-established and grown in 2021.
