VFL Women

Hawthorn Football Club is firmly committed to the development of women's football and made a commitment to proactively develop a long-term, sustainable program that focuses on three key pillars; participation, talent pathways and coaching.

The Hawthorn Football Club Foundation is playing a significant role in ensuring there are no obstacles that stand in the way of allowing these women to do what they love … play footy.

Box Hill and Hawthorn are one of the longest and closest aligned AFL/VFL partnerships. The introduction of the inaugural Box Hill Women’s team in the 2017 Swisse VFL Women’s competition (one of only two VFL teams aligned to an AFL team) fits perfectly with Hawthorn Football Club’s strategy of encouraging females to participate at a grassroots level and help develop clear talent pathways.
