Drummoyne Power is proud of the lead role it has taken in developing player pathways for girls playing AFL over several years.

As part of our commitment to the Canada Bay Cannons youth AFL alliance, we will be gradually transitioning older Youth Girls teams to the Cannons. We continue our active partnership with St Scholastica College in U15 and U18 Youth Girls.

In 2018, we are fielding a team in a new U10 Girls competition as well as in the existing U12, U15 and U18 Youth Girls.

U10, U12 and U15 Div2 girls teams will play as Cannons, and U15 Div 1, and U18 Youth Girls will play as Drummoyne Power.

Girls are eligible to play in the regular competition until U14 (based on federal sport policy). After 15 years old, girls must play in a Youth Girls-only competition.

With the AFL Women’s competition going from strength to strength, we are committed to helping many of our girls to join the ranks of the senior AFL teams in Sydney or in the national AFLW competition.

Girls and Youth Girls play modified rules. Games are on Sunday. For further on the rules of Youth Girls, see the resources in the AFL Rules section of this website.

Wet weather

AFL is a winter sport. Training will be cancelled only if the ground is closed by the Council, or conditions are unsafe (lightning/hail/strong winds).

The Council’s decision on whether to close the ground is made on the state of the oval and not on whether it is actually raining on any particular day. On weekdays, Drummoyne Power is usually notified of ground closures by about 2pm, and we aim to notify the club via Facebook and Twitter as soon as possible.

On game day, the Wet Weather Check website is the first to be updated with information on ground closures. While we will also make announcements on social media and contact managers, this is updated first. The decision to cancel a game is only ever made by the President or Ground Manager of the home club – never by individual teams.
