2017 Nicky Winmar & Kirby Bentley Cup Infomation

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 3:01 PM by Chris BROWN

The #DeadlyDemons return this February for the 2017 Nicky Winmar and Kirby Bentley Academy Programs. 

The Nicky Winmar/Kirby Bentley Carnival is an annual round robin tournament targeting Aboriginal male and female youth, aged 13 to 15. The tournament features teams representing both metropolitan and regional WA.

The Nicky Winmar Carnival was originally created to provide disengaged and at risk Aboriginal male youth with another platform to reconnect with the WA Football pathway. The inaugural Nicky Winmar Carnival was played in 2007 and consisted of five teams representing North and South metropolitan Perth and three regional sides. The overall goal of the Nicky Winmar & Kirby Bentley Carnival is to increase the amount of Aboriginal youth and community members participating in clubs and development squads as either players, coaches, umpires, administrators or volunteers.

The carnival provides members of the Aboriginal community with a direct opportunity to:

- Participate in a structured WA football marquee event

- Achieve coaching and umpiring accreditation

- Re-engage with educational and sport participation programs

- Connect with AFL/AFLW/WAFL/WAWFL mentors and role models

- Potentially be identified for WAFL/WAWFL development pathways

- Represent the state through selection into the AFLs National KickStart Championship


Training begins at Gosnells Senior Oval (Stalker Rd) on Monday 6th of Feb 2017 @ 4.30pm
