On Saturday 18th February many new ladies came down to try AFL for just the first or second time in what was a great day of learning the introductory skills, playing some fun games and getting to know each other.
In a great sign for the coming season our budding female footy stars came from all corners of the globe. We were overjoyed to welcome some Irish recruits from the Saigon Gaels (who also helped facilitate the day) as well as some new local Vietnamese talent, a Canadian and American contingent, even some Aussies showing the signs of what will be a great and diverse new look Swannies Ladies contingent in 2023 and beyond!
It was great to see returning players Lucy, Tram and Clare take the lead and provide the new players with full guidance and support. Going forward all ladies will be welcome to join Wednesday training at Sala from 6:45pm where we will run specific ladies skills drills and join the boys later in the sessions for some full field stuff AND we will also be doing more collaboration with the Gaels to host joint Gaelic/AFL ladies training on Saturday mornings – WATCH THIS SPACE!
If you have any questions about AFL or the Vietnam Swans don’t hesitate to contact our ladies coach Wayne on +84783354201.
