About the project

The Geelong Cats have been a critical part of the greater Geelong community for 160 years. We strive for success both on and off the field and are always looking to make a positive difference in the community that surrounds us.

We are embarking on a momentous historical occasion, with the commencement of the inaugural Cats AFLW team.

This team will represent more than just the football club, but the greater Geelong region, with the hope of inspiring young women to pursue their dreams.

We want to support our women by creating an environment consisting of specialised facilities and infrastructure, create programs and development opportunities for both our athletes and staff to excel both on and off the field, increase participation and encourage women to take leading roles within the sporting industry.

You have the opportunity to drive positive social change as we pave the way for AFLW and women in sport by donating towards the Cats womens program.
