2018 Pre-season a Roaring Success
The Claremont Women’s Football Club has continued its strong form into the 2018 season with preseason sessions starting in November. We have seen a steady increase in players with record numbers of 80+ women coming down to train on Wednesday and Friday nights.
Taking on a new Head Coach Andrew Di Loreto, 2018 is shaping up to be a stellar season. CWFC will field three teams in the WAWFL competition. Our League, Reserves and Rogers Cup (Youth) teams will be a force to be reckoned with when the season starts on the 8th April with our first game played at Claremont Oval.

CWFC started 2018 with our inaugural trip to Albany. Players and volunteers participated in and ran a “Female Football Festival” for the local community, running a scratch-match with the Great Southern Women’s Football Club. There were 60+ participants in the festival, our strongest turn out yet, with ages ranging from 5-40 years old. It really goes to show how much the AFLW competition has inspired many girls and women to take up the great game of AFL!
We continue to develop our strong relationship with the Claremont Football Club who have for the second year welcomed us into the fold, and who help us evolve as a team and a community of diverse, inspiring women. Many thanks to Graham Moss & Darcy Coffey for their continued support and contribution to our club.
A huge welcome and thank you to the coaches, returning tigers, new players and support staff. We also welcome a new committee and leadership group in 2018, click here to see who is who. We look forward to what we hope is a very successful season under their guidance!
We encourage anyone interested to attend our 1st Round Game at Claremont Oval on the 8th April against Perth Angels. Rogers Cup Youth Girls will play at 10:30, Reserves at 12pm and League at 2pm.
