Girls Footy at Cobras

After fantastic 2018/2019 seasons for our inaugural Girls football, resilient 2020-2021 seasons, and let’s not overlook multiple club Premierships (!!) Canterbury Junior Football Club is committed to making 2022 another great year for girls football.

Training has begun and all girls are welcome to bring along friends to join and trial football during our pre-season. Parents & players are encouraged to forward our communications to friends potentially interested in playing with CJFC.

Join us at our Season Launch & Family afternoon (after Practice matches) Sunday March 27th 4pm onwards at Canterbury Sports Ground.

CJFC’s primary aim is to offer all girls the best opportunity to be part of a club and team. In 2022 we are currently looking to field girls across all age groups up to U15 – mixed teams at U8/U9 level.

Come along, invite all your friends and have fun – Girls Footy is the fastest growing female sport in Australia.
