Female football on the rise at Picton Rangers FC


Macarthur Football Association side Picton Rangers FC recently ran a ‘Girls Only Football Session’ for the second consecutive year in a bid to attract more female footballers to the ambitious club for the 2022 grassroots season.

The club was buoyed by a fantastic turnout in 2021 which led to a substantial growth in the Rangers’ female football teams with the 2022 version doing its job as a number of new faces were evident at the recent session that took place on Thursday 2nd of February.

Coaching representatives from Football NSW, Macarthur FA and the Macarthur Rams Womens FC all attended the event and provided extra support to the club which saw them each deliver fun and engaging activities to the girls and ladies on the day.

“It was great to see the youngest participants having fun with local role models from Macarthur Rams Womens FC U16, U18s and Reserve grade teams,” said Macarthur Football Association’s Community Football Manager Kevin Guardado Amaya.

“Events like these continue to be a success thanks to the positivity around the girls’ first taste of playing in football in an organised environment.”

Picton Rangers continue to be heavily invested in female participation and the experience of all their players as they continue to support all their coaches through coach education courses and a great CCC program.
