JUNIOR Girls - the lioness

​In 2017 our girls’ junior footy program was established and has now grown to one of the largest in Victoria.  With over 200 females playing football at our club, this is testament to our culture of inclusiveness, development, fun and fitness.

 

Our teams receive on field skills coaching from AFL professionals such as specialise tackling sessions along with off field fun including junior club functions, pie & pizza nights and private team sessions at our local gym sponsors. 

Maribyrnong Park Football Club is committed to Junior Girls Football, our dedicated female football department lead by Club Vice President and Female Football Co-ordinator Theresa Murch ensures our female program is forefront and core to the success of our club.

Our coaches are both experienced women and men to ensure we are as inclusive as possible, as well having the talented Michael Agresta - Carlton Football Club's National Recruiting Manager, who heads up our
