We are confident that with the higher than expected interest already received via email, Aberfeldie Sports Club will be fielding an enthusiastic and competitive Senior Women's team in 2018. To help us gauge what our expected numbers will be, players wishing to play with us,  specifically those that have not played organized football before, are asked to click on the link below to register officially with an Expression of Interest.  Sometime after January we will be in a position to facilitate placement offers.

Once on our page and you click the continue button, click on the NEW MEMBER option. Only choose this registration option if you are new to Australian Football. If this option does not appear, put in your nominated email address. The system will try to identify you and if it cannot you will be given further instructions in order to proceed.

In the interim, if you intend to play but are a RETURNING PLAYER we will announce early in the New Year when the system will be taking registration payments - this is NOT required at this point in time. If you require a TRANSFER from your previous club please contact the email address noted in the next section below and we will forward you the application form.  Please note: The transfer system does not open again until 1st February, 2018 and we cannot process applications for them until after that date.

Coach Announcement

On October 8th, 2017 we were thrilled to officially announce the appointment of our Head Coach for Senior Women’s Football: 
Claire Heffernan

With a long and enormously successful playing career, including State Metro representation, a VFL Premiership, club Best and Fairest, and induction into St. Kilda Sharks Team of the Decade; we are confident that Claire’s passion and experience will ensure the inaugural Senior Women’s Team is in the best possible hands.

This is a very exciting time for our club and we are sure you will join us in making Claire feel right at home at Abers. We have been working diligently to attract players for Season 2018.  Below are some points to consider if you wish to be a player with us, and remember you are all welcome to join.

Why play at Abers?

This is your chance to be part of history. This is our first senior women’s team after a successful entry into junior football. In 2016 we launched Under 12s and Under 18s. The Under 12s did us proud winning the premiership in 2016. In 2017 we grew to three teams – U12, U15 and U18.

Be You

We strive for an inclusive culture. We embrace diversity and individuality. We believe everyone has a leader inside them that we want to grow and develop through football – being the best YOU can be and achieving your potential. Each player will have different motivations for playing football. Whether you are here to embrace life as a local footy player or be the next Daisy Pearce our environment will support.

Be Abers

Abers has a 'whole of club' philosophy and we strive to embrace it. Our results on and off the filed has made us the strongest club in the area with families from all over the region enjoying membership. We aim to assimilate into the club rather than be a separate team. The club's manifesto is important to us.
