    Father-Daughter rule exists, 1 game for the father in the AFL.
    Mother-daughter/son rules are yet to be worked out afaik. Mainly because only 8 games have been played so far.

    Abbey McKay is looking to be the first Father-Daughter pickup in the 2020 draft, daughter of Carlton's Andrew McKay, she was at the AFLW initial team announcement in 2016 wearing the blues guernsey when she was 15.

    I remember when I was about 8, I decided that I wanted to be a footy player when I grew up. However, it dawned on me that there were no girls in the afl teams, so I quickly hatched a cunning plan where I would pretend to be a boy, and thus I would fulfil my dream of playing footy for the Cats. Of course, I was told by those bigger and older than I was, that that would not work and alas, my plan was foiled.

    Now, it might be too late for 8 year old me but I am so glad that now, little girls can watch the mighty Cats and say "I want to be a footy player when I grow up" and actually be able to do that. They now have footy players that they can look up to that are just like them, they don't have to pretend to be anything they're not, and if they want to play footy then they can. The 8 year old in me is incredibly overjoyed by this news :)

    Lily Mithen would be No1 target and hopefully, Erin Hoare is another but might be constrained by how many we can take from Melbourne.

    Congrats to Teague on her selection in today's AFLW Rookie Draft:

    Former basketballer Anna Teague played her first season of football for Geelong this year in the VFLW, and will join fellow Cats Lily Mithen and Richelle Cranston at Melbourne in the AFLW.


    While I wish her all the best for her season with Melbourne, I hope that we get her back for our inaugural AFLW team in 12 months time

    She also joins Erin Hoare at Melbourne too after Erin was given a spot on the rookie list earlier in the year.

    Thank you - I couldn't remember which team Erin went.

    That's got to be a help in a way to go to a team where you already know a few others and you're not just the new girl

    The Geelong Cats continue to strengthen their women’s football program with the appointment of Simone Bellears as Women’s Football Strategy and Pathways Manager. Simone moves into the role after spending the past two years as the Cats Academy Pathway manager.

    The role is responsible for leading and cohesively integrating Women’s Football Programs in line with club values across the organisation. This includes leading the execution of the AFLW preparation strategy across the club, with the Cats set to enter the AFLW in 2019.

    Not that this is Geelong or AFLW related, still thought it was pretty interesting regardless....

    The fixtures for next year's VFL and VFLW seasons will be announced in mid-December.

    Just read in the Geelong Advertiser AFL Barwon had a "Girls try Footy" day on Saturday and were expecting about 100-150 girls to show up. They ended up with over 240 - some of whom had played juniors in the past but had to give it up as they couldn't progress further, but others were from different sports who were giving footy a try.

    AFL Barwon are looking at setting up a women's competition with 12 senior teams signed up already.

    Wonder if Sarah Blicavs plays AFL. She is a gun basketballer, and a top young lady.
