LOCAL football clubs have joined forces to bring equality to the field.
Belmont Junior and Senior Football Clubs and the Perth Angels Football club are working to ensure a structured and healthy path exists forboys and girls to pursue development with AFL.
With the AFL introducing an inaugural women’s league next year, Belmont AFL Auskick co-ordinator John Allen said now was the time to bring clubs together on a journey towards equality, diversity and opportunity.
“The Belmont Football community has always provided a strong avenue for its youth to engage their energy in a positive way,” he said.
“This extension of that thinking, coupled with the new high performance training opportunities now provides a clear pathway to success for all gender, race or creed in the greater Belmont area.”
Kids as young as four can now begin their journey with the AFL Auskick program.
