Well done BDSA and all league clubs in supporting the Breast Cancer Network Australia Pink Sports Day!!!
With help from our generous BDSA Pink Day supporters we where able to donate $840 to this worthwhile cause. Thanks for your efforts we appreciate everyone who helped with this event. Special thank you to Karla Devlin from the BDSA for organising the fund raiser.
As agreed on by Clubs at the BDSA Clubs meeting the Under 15 division will be split into two divisions starting Round 12. Both divisions will consist of 6 teams and both will complete for League and Cup Finals.
Thank you to players and Clubs who completed the online Survey. We had a good response, thank you for taking the time to respond. Fed Uni Students have presented their findings to the BDSA Committee. These will be presented at the next Presidents meeting.
The workshop will be held in Ballarat at Morshead Park on Sunday 6th August 10.00-11.30am. The session is for all female teams aged 12 and up. Breakfast will be available from 9.30am. Ideally the Coach, Team Manager and two players from each team should attend. Participants will be required to get physical so please wear the appropriate clothing.
Knee injuries are the most common type of injury among female football players with the risk peaking at 16 years of age.
Additionally, female football players are up to four times more likely to experience an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear than their male counterparts.
These statistics paint a frightening picture and it is clear that young female football players are at an extremely high risk of injury.
Thus, it is crucial to the development of our sport and player well-being that we implement a targeted approach to preventing these injuries.
The FIFA 11+ program is a specifically designed warm up and strengthening sequence that is designed to prevent lower limb injuries and develop stronger football players. It has been proven to reduce injuries in female players by up to 50%!
FFV representatives, headed by exercise physiologist Elliot Elliot are now heading out to Victorian female teams to educate coaches and players the ins, outs and practicalities of this critical program.
