While we continue to surge through the unchartered territory that is 2020, you better believe we have been planning our return to the footy field.

In 2021 – we will be fielding our VFLW program.

In another first, the VFLW season is going to run in line with the AFLW season. This means an earlier start to pre-season and an earlier start to the 2021 VFLW season, which will begin in late February or early March, depending on decisions from the AFL.

Keeping in line with the easing of government restrictions, we plan on beginning a virtual pre-season on 19 October 2020.

Again, keeping compliant to restrictions, this will then lead into in-person, team training the week of 23 November 2020.

For more information, or if you are interested in joining the Falcons in 2021, be sure to follow our Instagram page @darebinfalcons.

For VFLW opportunities and interest, please email our VFLW Football Operations Manager, Larissa Payne, at [email protected].

While you’re at it, get even more inspired by having a look at our Strong Girls WorkInProgess program – #StrongGirlsWIP – headed by Darebin and AFLW superstars; Jess Dal Pos, Aasta O’Connor and Darcy Vescio.

We hope more news surrounding community sport in 2021 comes to light soon.

Stay safe, Falcons!
