This team is made up of around 30 talented young women. Many of these girls have reached 10+ years service at the club and enjoyed many successful footballing years. At present they are at the top of the table recording phenomenal wins each week. Their coaches are also very dedicated to our club and have volunteered their time for many years now relishing in the wins the girls are producing. Womens football has a sentimental history to WWFC , Austin Butler (club stalwart now passed) and his wife were at the forefront of bringing a womens football competition to the Central Coast. The club is immensely proud of these current young women and the outstanding sportsmanship, and team spirit they represent. Female registrations at the club make up 20% of our players and this is growing every year.
Value to the Community
Recognising women in sport whether it be team or individual has a long time now taken a back seat to men. In more recent times with the huge success of the Matildas, and the ever growing media coverage of the Womens A-League womens football is now beginning to cast a shining light. These young women at WWFC love their game, have a wonderful team bond with players and coaching staff alike. They continue each year to strengthen and build their skills resulting in quality performances all season. Our younger female non comp players can look up to these girls and see they too can take their football well in to their teen years and beyond. These girls are positive role models for the future of womens football and sport in general.
Why the funds are needed
At present like many clubs, players strips are bought in bulk and reused over 2-3 years. The girls are effectively wearing a mens strip and it would be great to be able to get the funding to go towards a new strip that is in womens sizing and if funds allow it a design that they can have a contribution in. I believe the girls would not only be extremely proud and happy to receive a "womens strip" but also to have something that identifies them as the women player representatives of Woy Woy FC. We estimate that a cost of $50 per strip per player with 30 players would cost around $1500. The new strip would include player jersey, shorts and socks.
