WHAT IS FALCONS ACADEMY?

Falcons Academy was introduced by the Darebin Women’s Sports Clubs in 2018 as a fun, skills based opportunity for girls to improve their football knowledge and skills under the guidance of some of the most experienced leaders of the Darebin Falcons football club. In this way, Falcons Academy offers an opportunity for the next generation of football loving girls and women to both learn from and support our elite players on their journeys towards sustainable careers in the football industry.
