ROCKINGHAM United Women’s and Girls (W& G) Football Club has provided aspiring female footballers a place to train and play in a all female friendly environment, the first club of it’s kind in the region. Paul Garnett Reserve in Cooloongup is the home of the club.

The Under 6 to Senior female footballers learn new skills and build new friendships through participation in the club.

Rockingham United W&G FC vice president Corey House said the club has a primary focus on promoting and developing female footballers.

“There’s enough clubs doing the boys so we stay away from that,” he said.

“We want to get an awareness out there that is home for female footballers in Rockingham, in a female friendly environment where they can train an play away from the boys, feel comfortable, learn new skills and most importantly have fun.”

The club also caters for young boys through the Miniroos Phase.

Paul Garnett Reserve in Cooloongup is the home of the club.

Pre Season Training for the Senior Women team the starts on January 17, for the Junior Girls team on February 17, and the football season kicks off in April for the 2018 Season.
