WAWFL to govern Rogers Cup Youth GirlsFriday, November 4, 2016 - 9:55 AM

In an exciting announcement, the WA Women’s Football League will officially govern the Rogers Cup Youth Girls competition from season 2017.

Having been previously run by the WA Football Commission since 2013, the Rogers Cup Youth Girls competition caters for female players aged 13 – 17 years. 

The competition was created to bridge the gap between junior football and senior football, providing a complete pathway for girls to play female football.

With 319 Rogers Cup Youth Girl players in 2016, the WAWFL looks forward to amalgamating the governance of both senior and junior competitions.

Taking on the governance and administration of both competitions will see very little changes for players and simplify the management for all clubs.

WAWFL President Carolyn Hills looked forward to welcoming the Rogers Cup Youth Girls competition under the WAWFL structure.

“We think this move has been a long time coming, with clubs unanimously requesting the WAWFL take on the Rogers Cup Youth Girls competition into the future.

“The move will make administration much easier for our clubs, and will enable a smooth transition from junior football into senior football for the players.”

The governance change will take place from 2017 onwards.
