Our club has a simple vision, to provide every member of our club with the best football experience that we can. This includes our girls.
One of the priorities has very much been the investment into girl’s football at the club. This is something that we are all passionate about and looking to build on moving forward.
"Every young girl who wants to play AFL at Manly Bombers will have the best pathway of any other Sydney club "
Our girls train on the same night, supporting each other and providing encouragement and mentoring opportunities.
It is common to see the whole team come out to support another in weekly matches.
Our U18 girls have the support and assistance from the local Senior AFL Club Manly Wolves Women's team.
Many being given the space to train with and requested to 'play up'.
In 2019 we will have U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 all girl teams with room for all girls who wish to play. Plus our squad of girls in Auskick including an U8 all girls team.
Our Girls teams have adopted the silver and red 'away' strip as their own, creating a strong identity for themselves whilst honoring the club traditional colours of black and red.
"I played here as a junior and was the only female in the competition, so it means a lot and is amazing to see so many girls at this club enjoying their football."
