Camberwell Sharks Junior Football Club is passionate about girls football and seeing them all active in our community. Our passion has seen our girls football grow over 400% over the past few seasons to eight girls only teams in Season 2022.
We have our Camberwell Sharks Auskick Centre, held at our home ground, Lynden Park every Saturday morning which currently has close to 20% female participation. This is a fun atmosphere where basic skills are taught from Kinder to Grade 3. We encourage all girls and boys to do a couple of years of Auskick before joining our Junior Football Club.
Our Summer Program has been running for a number of years and continues to be a huge success with girls aged 7yo to 17yo coming along each week to participate in the program. The aim of our Summer program is to provide girls with a diverse range of activities to cater for all abilities and to learn to have fun on and off the field!
Our 2018 Season skyrocketed our girls footy with a jump from 28 registered female players in 2017 to over 100 girls registered in 2018, filling five girls only teams!
2019 Season we had six teams – Under 10s, Under 11s, Under 13s, Under 14s, Under 16s and Youth Girls.
2020 Season we increased again to eight teams for girls – Under 9s, Under 10s, Under 11s, Under 12s, Under 13s, Under 14s, Under 16s and Youth Girls although noone hit the ground due to Covid. BUT they all came back and in 2021 we saw 2 x Under 10s, an Under 11s, Under 12s, Under 13s, Under 14s, Under 16s and Youth Girls!
Our coaches and team staff provide the girls with a safe, fun environment to learn and grow and to become resilient, strong girls both on and off the field.
