The current Women's team started 3 years ago & now currently has 14 players with an age range between 15 & 20. They are from the small town of Crookwell NSW, with all the players from the township. The majority of the side are currently in year 11 at Crookwell High School, which the girls play for as well. In the past 2 years the side has remained largely unchanged with only a couple of players leaving/coming into the team. They have reached the reserve grade Grand Final for the past 2 years with a first up loss & a win last year. The side has also won the Association Cup competition that is run by the Southern Tablelands Football Association. For such a young side, this is an excellent achievement.
Value to the Community
As the team is so young, the local community is very proud of their achievements in the last few seasons. They have attracted new players to both the women's & men's teams of the town due to their success. They have shown to all players young & old what can be done with hard work & passion for their chosen sport. They are always wanting to improve, but also like to have fun. They don't argue or disrespect anyone, & are always encouraging each other.
Why the funds are needed
The training fields for soccer in Crookwell have no lighting, which makes it difficult to train during the afternoon in winter. Most of the training starts at approx. 4.30pm but has to finish at approx. 5.30pm as it is to dark to continue. The funding would be used to help purchasing flood lights that would be erected next to one of the fields to extend training time.
