Northern Angels Youth girls football club is currently in its second year of competition. We are a small club boasting 17 under 18 youth girls registered to play AFL football against three other teams in our league. Nathalia has a population of 1500 people and is situated in northern Victoria on the beautiful broken creek. Our club was started to offer girls who were interested in playing AFL football, the opportunity to participate in the sport. We had four of our players chosen to represent the Murray Bushranger Youth Girls Football Team, which allowed them to participate in AFL Youth Girls Football carnivals in Traralgon, Bendigo and Melbourne. As we are a small non profitable club, we rely on the generosity of our local businesses - which is proving difficult as it is not recognised as a major sporting body.
Value to the Individual
Personally, my daughter is 15 years old and is a member of this club. The girls train once a week and play matches against other local towns on a Sunday. Marni has gone on to represent the Murray Bushrangers Youth Girls, which has allowed her to play in carnivals in Traralgon, Bendigo and Melbourne. This has been an amazing experience for her, and as the sport is becoming bigger she hopes to represent an AFL Girls team in the future.
