Home > NATIONAL FEMALE TALENT SEARCH
The AFL's national female talent search campaign designed to give female athletes who are currently active in other sports the opportunity to test their football fitness and skills has been travelling the country and will be in Hobart on Sunday.
AFL Female Ambassador and Melbourne captain Daisy Pearce will lead the sessions with state female academy coaches.
Athletes identified during the campaign will be offered places in female state academies which support players already identified and placed in state league clubs.
Athletes will experience familiar Draft Combine testing; standing and running vertical jumps, agility, 20m sprint and the shuttle run (beep test).
Participants will get an opportunity to demonstrate skills including kicking, marking and hand balling as well as their decision making, spatial awareness and appetite to compete.
