Women kicking on 2.0

April 21st, 2021

The celebrated Kick-On For Women program is entering a new phase – and coming to a ground near you.
Since its inception the concept has reached out to females who might be around the football family – but don’t necessarily want a pathway to competitive football.
Rather, it’s been a program focused on fun, inclusion, and gaining a little fitness along the way.
None of that has changed.
What has morphed though – with Sport AUS grant seed money winding up – is that Northern NSW Football is passing the successful concept to a club-based delivery model.
Kick-On For Women Project Officer Michelle Forbes explains: “We’ve created a cookie-cutter system if you like which the clubs can use to deliver. So it’s an exciting opportunity for the the clubs to take control.”
Stepping straight to the plate are Westlawn and Nambucca – who will roll out their latest program from Monday (details below).
In May, Michelle said NNSW Football would call for expressions of interest from other clubs to run the program in Terms 3 and 4 and into the New Year.
Yamba – bouncing back this season with a women’s competitive team – is said to be among those clubs keenly interested.
“Kick-On For Women is about creating that space for women who are non-footballers. They might have family members who are in the game. So the program is aimed at giving people a little fitness, fun, and to learn something about the game,” Michelle said.
