The Western Bulldogs are offering a unique opportunity for aspiring AFLW footballers to train and develop in an elite environment.
Girls aged between 14 and 23 are invited to join the Bulldogs for a live-in camp that spans over three days at Wesley College in Melbourne.
The camp will be headed by Level 3 AFL High Performance Coaches, as well as feature elite testing by Rookie Me and physical conditioning by KB Performance, owned and operated by Dogs forward Katie Brennan.
“The live-in camp will provide the participants an opportunity to experience the structure of an AFL Women’s program,” Bulldogs AFLW senior coach Paul Groves said.
“Areas to be covered include testing by Rookie Me, skill development, game play, education on all aspects of being an elite player, and key note speakers.”
One of those speakers is former Australian Opals head coach Brendan Joyce, who was also tasked with leading the technical direction of the Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence, the under-17s (Sapphires) side and the under-19s (Gems) team.
“Using the elite facilities at Wesley College, we hope that the environment for the girls to improve and show us their athletic ability, football skills and personal character will be like no other,” Groves said.
“The pathways for young females are continually developing and our recruiting team will be on hand to provide assistance about what AFLW clubs are looking for in the draft.”
The camp will run from July 3-5, with registration to be in by June 19.
