Not sure where to put this- but, since many are amazed by the very high participation rates of female AF in Qld, this thread is appropriate.

GR AF is very weak in regional & rural Qld. (excluding coastal areas). Some Qld. regional & rural areas are offering one free Auskick session to boys & girls- no limitations on who can join.
I am aware many AF Clubs offer free registration for kid to play full H & A competition AF and/or Auskick- if parents can prove they are experiencing financial hardship eg on unemployment New Start payments, copies of most recent Tax returns etc.

Roma is. 470 kms from Brisbane, pop. c.6900.

I wonder how often one free, no restrictions, Auskick, has been offered in Qld. & NSW?

Trials seem sensible in a region where most parents have little exposure to the sport. I can imagine people reluctant to pay up front for something they are unfamiliar with.

Womens football in Toowoomba is beginning to really blossom, with some outstanding performers.
One in particular & I’ll stick my neck on the chopping block here & say she is going to turn into something special is 15yo Molly Fraser, moved from defence to the forward line & is making every post a winner. Strong mark with a beautiful accurate left foot, kicked 9 last weekend, which is not bad for a young lass playing in the seniors.

Womens footy from a different angle.
Two Brazilian Students take up footy umpiring in a unusual move, and it is not known if they are returning to Brazil after graduation.

This is probably a really good thing for the local AFLQW to allow girls to build form in the local league and genuinely earn AFLW selection, instead of just guessing which player would best replace an injured teammate.

Its great for the two aflw clubs and probably horrendous for everyone else who has to put up with extremely fluctuating quality of teams over the entire competition, given not only differences week to week with who is dropped but you'll also then have them all join in the comp a month or so after the AFLW season
