Girls 8 - 16 Years
Bentleigh United Cobras FC is committed to increasing opportunities for girls and woment to participate in sport both in a social and competitive contexts.
We are constantly working to develop our programs and infrastructure to support participation by girls and women in all areas of football.
Whilst we allow girls to participate in mixed teams with boys and encourage girls-only teams to participate in the mixed competition to offer a higher level of development opportunities, we understand that for many girls this is not appealing.

academy teams in mixed competition
development teams in mixed and girls-only competition
community teams in girls-only competitions
social teams / training only groups.
