Ballarat City FC is putting out a call for female players across all age groups to join pre-season training.
The club is eager to build on the encouraging numbers it had on the training track at the end of last year.
City FC director of football Laura Brady said the club wanted to provide as many players with an opportunity to not only play, but develop their skill sets.
She said there was particularly scope for growth in junior ranks, with no limit on the number of under-age teams it could field.
Brady said the flexibility existed to deliver teams based on demand.
City FC is looking to play in the Ballarat District Soccer Assocation under-13 open and under-16 girls and possibly under-12 open.
Alannah Stevens and Paige Daly are overseeing the junior program.
Brady said it was pleasing to see senior players involved in the development of juniors.
Pre-season training resumes at Morshead Park on Tuesday, January 19, with sessions twice a week.
She said the senior squad already had solid block of training behind it in preparation for the state league one senior and reserves season, which was expected to start on Sunday, April 18.
She said the squad had already played practice matches against Calder United and Geelong Galaxy and would again meet Calder on Saturday, February 6.
All up plans are to have two practice games in February and two in March, as well as the opening round of the knockout Nike Cup in late February.
Brady is taking any enquiries on players wanting lodge an expression of interest for next season on 0417 168 980. Junior players being catered for will have been born from 2007 to 2010.
