School Female Football
The Manning Rippers Juniors have combined with Manning Primary school year 5/6 girls to help train them for an upcoming football competition. The Competition is called the Dockers Cup it is an inter-school competition for female students in years 5 & 6.
Brent Edmonds, a teacher at Manning was instrumental in engaging the Rippers to help with his Manning Primary team. A big thanks also to Olly Hurst for helping them with training. The Rippers will also help with resources including equipment and jumpers.
Manning was one of the first clubs in Perth District to introduce a Girls Auskick program in 2012 which developed into girls competition in 2014. Auskick for girls still continues today however the club realised the benefit of girls participating with the boys in their early Auskick development years.
