Women's football is one the fastest growing participation sports in Australia. The success of our National team, the Matildas, and the establishment of a National club-based competition (the W-League) ensure a strong development path for young girls entering the sport.
As interest in the sport is increasing so is the profile of South Australia's local club scene. Cumberland United is one of the first, and most successful, Adelaide-based women's clubs.
Known as "The Family Club", we are a community-oriented organisation, with a strong philosophy of developing and nurturing talent. We generate the stars of tomorrow, but also provide a setting for women to enjoy being part of a team and the social aspects of the game. We encourage physical activity and skills development in adults, who are newcomers to the game, by entering teams in many open divisions.
Cumberland United Women’s Football Club provides a safe, fair and inclusive environment for all its members and football players.
Cumberland take very seriously their due diligence to all players and as such take great pride in being associated with the following organisations and groups.
A STARCLUB is a well-run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment. - www.recsport.sa.gov.au/starclub/index.php
