Women's football is one the fastest growing participation sports in Australia. The success of our National team, the Matildas, and the establishment of a National club-based competition (the W-League) ensure a strong development path for young girls entering the sport.
As interest in the sport is increasing so is the profile of South Australia's local club scene. With the support of the FFSA CUWFC is one of the first, and most successful, Adelaide-based women's only clubs.
We are a community-oriented organisation, with a strong philosophy of developing and nurturing talent. We generate the stars of tomorrow by providing a setting for girls and women to develop an understanding of being part of a team, respect, commitment as well as the social aspects of the game. We encourage skills acquisition and development across all age groups with a particular focus on creating pathways from an early age. With such a strong focus and programme in place newcomers to the game are always welcome as we have a programme for them to accelerate their development.
