As Footy 9s is an inclusive sport, it is of vital importance that women involved in the game should be offered the same opportunities as men.

This policy of inclusiveness operates at all levels, from beginner’s programs through to elite pathways.

Our Aussie Rules Schools program is mixed (boys & girls) and non-contact, giving young girls the opportunity and confidence to compete on a level playing field.

Full contact options are also available for our female players, from club to national level.

At all levels of our game we will ensure the same opportunities – whether as a player, coach, umpire or administrator – are available to both boys and girls, men and women.
