AFLW player to attend girls development clinic in Nambucca Heads

Cambridge McCormick has played ten AFLW matches for the GWS Giants.

AFLW PLAYER Cambridge McCormick will be sharing her passion and knowledge of Aussie Rules at an upcoming girls development clinic at Nambucca Heads.

The GWS Giants player will attend the AFL North Coast’s Force Girls Development Clinic, to be held between 10am and 12pm on Saturday, 11 March, at the E.J Biffin Playing Fields in Nambucca Heads.

The former Port Macquarie Magpies premiership player will coach and mentor the girls in the session.

McCormick was keen to be involved in the development of female footy on the North Coast.

“I’m really keen to return to the area and be involved in this fantastic initiative,” she said.

“The development of female footy in the North Coast area is phenomenal and I’m excited to be a part of that.

“I heard that the girls had a great time at the first session and I’m eager to join in the fun.”

AFL NSW/ACT Development Lead Matt Crawley is excited to have McCormick in attendance.

“I am thrilled that we’ll have Cambridge in and amongst the girls,” he said.

“It’s a rare experience to have elite players involved so closely in the development of players.

“This is a great opportunity for players to learn and expand their knowledge of the game with Cambridge’s guidance.”

McCormick was selected by the GWS Giants in the 2022 NAB AFLW Draft, after two seasons in the local AFL Canberra competition.

She has played ten AFLW games for the Giants in the ruck and as an extra midfielder.

Force Girls Development Clinics are a brand new initiative within the region, designed to support girls aged twelve to seventeen in their growth as footy players from both a skills and game sense perspective.

All sessions in the series are free to participants, and players can take part even if they didn’t participate in the first program.
