Ladies Day Grows
Wednesday, 06 July 2016
The Subiaco Football Club hosted their annual “Ladies Day” in cooperation with the Coastal Titans Football Club last Saturday at Medibank Stadium.
Administration & Events Co-Ordinator Brooke Edwards coordinated the initiative, and she was ecstatic to see another solid turnout for Subiaco v Swan Districts.
“The first Ladies Day was well received so we decided to expand on the concept in 2016 and the women of the club have really embraced it.” Said Edwards
“It offers a fantastic opportunity to appreciate the roles women play in football whilst also bringing the women of the club together at the same time.”
Subiaco’s female affiliate the Coastal Titans contributed a host of guest speakers including their coach and Subiaco Reserves Assistant Martine Pearman.
“It was great having Martine’s insight at the function on being a player and a coach aswell as a woman in a male dominated industry.” Said Edwards
“We also had WAWFL President Carolyn Hills and two players from the fledgling Fremantle Dockers women’s’ team and their insight was invaluable.”

Although Ladies Day is only in its second year the impact of women in the game continues to expand. The event will undoubtedly grow in the future as the presence of women in footy becomes more profound.
“There is a better acknowledgement of the roles women play in football nowadays and our Ladies Day is a reflection of that,”
“Jarrad Schofield’s wife Bec is always on the forefront of making sure the ladies around the club are appreciated and were confident the event will continue to grow.”
“With the numbers and support we had this year we can focus on building Ladies Day as a season calendar highlight.” added Edwards
