Footy girls’ Super time

21 December 2023|Community News, Sport| Off Comments off on Footy girls’ Super time|

An all-girls football program recently launched in Hobart is helping children new to the sport develop their skills.

Superkick is a new football program for kids aged eight to 12 wanting to get a feel for football without any pressure.

All-girls sessions are happening weekly at the John Turnbull Oval in Lenah Valley, involving short skills clinics and small-scale games.

The program will grow young girls’ confidence while they have fun playing footy.

The games are non- contact, allowing those new to the sport to get involved without the fear of getting knocked around.

“We are really excited to be launching our first all-girls Superkick program in Hobart,” AFL Tasmania Women and Girls Community Football Lead Amy Bailey said.

“It’s an opportunity to grow participation in our younger aged girls and support them to learn the game, while having fun with other girls developing their footy skills.”

Superkick is part of the AFL’s Women and Girls Action Plan that focuses on growing participation in AFL, with the target of equal gender participation by 2030.

Superkick will be rolled out across the state in 2024 for boys and girls aged eight to 12. To sign up, go to play.afl/play/aflsuper-kick
