Stawell’s junior female football team has already begun training for the 2018 season.
Non-compulsory fitness sessions have been organised to ensure the team can head into next season as well prepared as possible.
Stawell’s Andrew Bach will once again take on the mantle of head coach, looking to build on the work he put in place this season.
Bach said the feedback he received following the season was the need for more fitness training.
“The main subject of discussion from the girls at the end of last season was fitness. They wanted to be able to run games out better,” he said.
“At this stage we are holding non-compulsory cross fit and circuit sessions, but we will also be looking at using this time to teach the girls game plans so they can continue to learn about the game.
Bach said half a dozen girls have attended the sessions run so far.
The Warriors finished sixth in the inaugural Deakin University Female Football League in 2017. Bach said he hopes to see a vast improvement in his second season in charge.
“It is up to the girls to take the next step,” he said.
“I think the girls are keen to get back into it which is a good sign.
“They improved their skills a lot during the season, now we are hoping they can start to develop their whole game.”
Bach said new players are encouraged to join the team and give football a try.
“Hopefully we can get some new girls to the club and keep growing female footy,” he said.
