2023 SA U16 Girls Academy


SANFL selectors have settled on a 48-player 2023 SA U16 Girls Academy squad in preparation for contests against Victoria Metro and Western Australia next year. 

Set to be coached by Norwood premiership player and SANFL Female Talent Coordinator Bek McMahon, the Croweaters will start off with six players from each SANFLW club training on Tuesday February 14.

The squad will then be trimmed to 30 after an internal trial is played on Friday March 10.

SA will then tackle Victoria Metro in Melbourne on Sunday April 23 before heading across the Nullarbor to confront Western Australia in Perth on Sunday April 30.

McMahon will be assisted by Norwood SANFLW captain Alison Ferrall, SANFLW Leading Goal kicker Kelly Barltrop and Redlegs premiership wingman Anthony Wilson.

Ferrall and Barltrop are both graduates of SANFL’s female coaching academy while Wilson has been working on and off the field with Port Adelaide’s SANFL program.
