2019 Womens AFL
Manning Rippers have a team of girls who have chosen to use 2019 as a development year ready to enter the Perth Football League Womens competition in 2020.
Numbers on track have been very positive with up to 25 attending training sessions so far. The girls are certainly embracing the opportunity to learn the game and the skills and have fun at the same time.
Training is Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm, all ages are welcome.

2019 Dockers Cup
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.
Hopefully we may get some of these players playing for the Rippers one day.
Girls Auskick and Modifieds Football
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.
