The YJFL in conjunction with our Community partners at Collingwood FC are presenting two female football webinars for YJFL clubs in early December. YJFL Female Football Ambassador Penny Cula-Reid will be taking part in both sessions, with guests from Collingwood FC also involved in both webinars. The first webinar is aimed at coaches of girls teams, with the second session more relevant for players who are keen to gain an understanding of the pathways available for female players.
Registration process has opened and we would like to see plenty of YJFL coaches and players register to be involved.

This webinar series is a great opportunity for YJFL coaches to develop some ideas that they can take into the 2021 season and continue their personal development, and for YJFL players to gain a greater understanding of what is needed if they want to keep improving their football and get those opportunities at a higher level.
