In May 2017, Gridiron West announced the creation of the Gridiron West Women’s League. The Curtin Saints welcomed the opportunity to be involved with the inaugural season, putting their helmets in the ring for the formation of a women’s team to compete in the upcoming season.
The competition will be 9-a-side with the women gearing up in full pads, helmets and jerseys. With the focus on learning and enjoying the sport of gridiron, the players will be given every chance to experience both sides of the field to find their niche.
The girls joining the march come from a diverse range of sporting backgrounds including AFL, rugby and soccer. The Saints, under the direction of experienced player and Head Coach Gareth Weinbrecht, will look to spread their wings and make an immediate impact upon the competition with their season debut in the spotlight of the Friday night lights.
It will be an epic clash of north versus south, so come on down to support the Saints as they do battle with one goal in mind, claiming the first ever “W” of the Gridiron West Women’s League.
