Youth Girls

Dynamic Footy Skills coaching expertise also covers Girls football.

In 2011, DFS ran its first  full day development session for Girls only featuring current St Kilda Development Coach, Peta Searle, as DFS Head Coach and a young Louise Stephenson as a participant, who has since played for the Western Bulldogs.

From these early beginnings DFS have continued to offer Girl specific programs. These programs include the Elite Summer Training, Masterclass Series, School Holiday and In-Club Development programs.

A key focus of the DFS approach for the the girls football is the provision of leading female coaches and role models. The coaches have vast experience in coaching junior football, including at TAC Cup level and within the metro championships. Also many have played at the elite level for the Melbourne and Western Bulldog football clubs.
