Female participation is the fastest growing area of Rugby League. In recent seasons, the NRL has introduced a wide range of female-specific opportunities and pathways ranging from an introduction to the game in primary schools, right through to our world champion Jillaroos at the elite level. These programs include girls-only League Stars programs, in-school clinics and Come & Try events through to Gala Days and regular competitions.
The introduction of the Women’s National Championships and NRLW have strengthened the elite pathway for aspiring players to perform at an International level. Additionally, via the Touch transition programs, girls of all ages from a Touch Football background are able to build on the solid skill foundation they have developed and try their hand at the contact form of the game.
Here at Frankston Raiders, we pride ourselves in providing an open and safe environment for all ages. Our little ones commence playing “Tag Safe” in mixed teams in the Under 6 and Under 7’s, modified rules also in a mixed team from Under 8’s through to U12’s, our all girls sides commence at Under 13’s through to Seniors.
