CHUFC Women’s Football

In 2013 a couple of ladies had the great idea to reform a women’s team at Cooks Hill. Since then, we’ve gone from one bare-bones team to three – we’ve made the A-Grade grand final 2 years in a row and won one, introduced our first ever Zone Squad in 2018 with both teams making the finals, and participated in NNSWF Women’s State Cup, taking on a few WPL squads while we were at it – we’re happy to say we’re now firmly a part of the Cookers culture.

Whether you’re a newbie, seasoned veteran, in your football prime, a mum, a uni student, an international adventurer, new to Newy, or just bored and looking for something to do, we’ve probably got a spot for you*. We’re a bunch of friendly, social and easy-going women who support each other in football and in life – we’re a community, and if football is (or you think it is) your thing, we’d love for you to be a part of it.

*Spots are limited though, so you do need to get in quick.

Teams

Cooks Hill Women’s Football is currently made up of three teams.

All Age A

All Age A is for players who usually have a number of years’ experience. The A Grade competition is relatively competitive and requires a commitment to training 2 nights a week as well as games on Sunday.

Zone Community League (first and reserves)

The zone squad is for players looking for something a little more social, but still want a good level of competition. The squad is made up of a reserve team and a first-grade team.

Your level of skill will help determine which grade is primarily the best fit for you for the season. Reserve grade is a good place to start for those who have minimal playing experience, with first grade offering a slightly more competitive kick-around for players with a bit more experience.

The zone squad allows flexibility for players to move between grades depending on their progress and availability throughout the season.

Zone requires a commitment to training 2 nights a week and games on Sunday. Both Zone teams play at the same location every week with the Reserve game followed immediately by the First-Grade game.

Training

In 2020 women’s training nights are Monday and Thursday at Hudson Park Kotara until further notice. Training kicks off at 6.15pm sharp.

Training will be Monday and Thursday nights at No.4 during the season.

Costs and Registration

Registration costs for the 2020 season will be $440 – view 2020 fee breakdown.

Players wanting to register for Zone Community League or All Age must first ensure there is a position available. Please contact the Women’s Coordinator at cookshillfc.womens@gmail.com.

Social stuff

AT CHUFC, it’s not always about the football. We love hanging out at all-club events and host a bunch of our own as well.

After training and games, we usually follow-up all the running around with a cold drink and a feed at the Commonwealth Hotel.

We encourage as much pre-season team bonding as possible – at the pub, laser tag, dinners, the pub etc.

Season launch generally happens sometime in April before the season kicks off and entails some team song singing and a lot of food and drink.

And then there is the annual pub-crawl. From black and white to World Cup theme – fancy dress skills will be required.

Our season normally wraps-up with an end of season trip up the coast for sunshine, beers, and the beach. Doesn’t get much better, really.
