Sarah tells us why she plays football.
The National Premier League Victoria (NPLW) is the highest level of competition for female players in the State. Ten NPLW clubs compete in the senior, U19, U16, U14 & U12 NPLW competitions. You can view all competitions, results and fixtures from the NPLW here.
Community clubs underpin the NPLW - over 170 community clubs have girls/women's teams competing in Women's State Leagues or Sportsmart Junior Girls Leagues. View all competitions, results and fixtures from the Women's State Leagues here, or the Sportsmart Junior Girls Leagues here.
MiniRoos is a fantastic introduction to football for girls aged between 4 and 11. Designed for children of all skill levels, this nation-wide initiative uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in an inclusive way.
It focuses on learning new skills, being active, making life-long friends and, potentially, unearthing the next generation of Westfield Matildas. MiniRoos teams can play in inter-club Gala Days, or in leagues.
To learn more about MiniRoos visit the ALDI MiniRoos for Girls website, or view MiniRoos for Girls competitions and fixtures here.
Junior Girls (12 - 18 years old)
