Northern Lights Squad Announced

October 5, 2022

Canada’s National Australian Football Women’s team, the Northern Lights, has announced the squad that will be representing Canada over the next two years.

The Northern Lights have been quietly building since the return of consistent play under Head Coach Tricia Rolfe. Multiple camps across the last two years and most recently, the National Coaches travelling to Vancouver to attend the AFL Canada Cup to scout players playing for their home clubs, has led to the naming of the squad below.

With the International Cup being delayed another year to 2024, the staff are looking to bring back international footy with the Northern Lights donning their jerseys in Florida in 2023. 

The strength of womens Footy in Canada is obvious with 8 clubs and 4 provinces represented in the National Squad.

Congratulation to all players named in the squad!
