Goodwood Saints first ran a Girl's team in a one night carnival in 2013, then followed this up with an U14's trm in a dedicated Girls competition in 2014. By 2016 we had grown enough to field an U13's and U15's teams in the SANFL Juniors competition. The club is growing it's Girl's profile every yea, building on its base of passionate young footy-playing girls who love the sport and are forming strong bonds with their team mates and the club.
Goodwood Saints Girls Footy has a focus on participation, skill-building, team work, fitness, friendship and fun. The rules are modified to allow the younger girls to build theirconfidence in gaining the skills needed to play AFL footy. Last year one of our U15 players made the State side which was a great achievement, and one we are hoping to build on in 2017.
The Saints have enthusiastically welcomed the girls into the club, providing support and recognition of their achievements and contribution to the Club.
The Girls love being part of the "Saints Family".
