THE West Australian Football Commission has made a new appointment to support female players and coaches aspiring to reach the Women’s AFL competition.
East Perth talent manager Clint Degebrodt was last week announced as the WAFC’s first full-time female talent manager.
With the popularity of the women’s game at an all time high, Degebrodt said he was excited to commence in the new role.
“This is a huge opportunity to be involved in something really exciting,” he said.
“This is a massive growth area for footy and a new opportunity for a whole generation of footballers to play the game they love at the highest level.
“I am looking forward to helping players achieve their potential, making sure WA girls stay at the top of the tree and continuing to strengthen and develop players in the WA Women’s Football League and Youth Girls competitions.
“I can’t wait to get started.”
Degebrodt’s experience includes coaching WA’s State 18 Youth Girls, working as a high performance manager with Swan Districts, coaching the Pilbara Talent Academy and being head coach of the North West WA AFL 16s Program.
