RYCO 24•7 proudly supported the inaugural Australian Football League’s (AFL) Northern Territory Youth Girls State Championships held in September 2010.

 

“This was the first event of its kind in the Northern Territory and RYCO’s support enabled us to run an outstanding event,” said AFLNT Female Development Manager Breeanna Brock. A first for the Territory, RYCO 24•7 supported the advancement of high performance sport for girls and female football programs in general.  “RYCO 24•7’s support of this event provided the opportunity for girls to participate in a structured talent identification system similar to that of their male counterparts.”  

 

The carnival exposed participants to high performance testing such as the beep test, vertical leap test and a range of skills tests, all similar to those conducted at the AFL Draft Camp. “This carnival gave the girls an opportunity to compete at a Territory level against their peer group. These girls will be the future talent for the Female Football player pathway,” said Brock.

 

Regional Manager of RYCO SA/NT, Mr. Derek Bonner was excited about the prospect of the Youth Girls program in the Northern Territory. “RYCO 24•7 was pleased to support such an important event which is an integral part of AFLNT’s new push into female development, and with the experienced Breeanna Brock behind the project we are sure that the program will be a success,” said Bonner.

 

Representative teams chosen from the Middle School Girls Program from areas all over the Northern Territory, including Darwin, Palmerston, Alice Springs, Tiwi, Maningrida, Wadeye, Gove and Katherine competed in a two day carnival at TIO Stadium in Darwin on the 27th and 28th of September, 2010.
