The West Coast Eagles is proud to have the support of its Inclusion & Diversity Partner BHP. Together, we aim to promote the importance of education and healthy lifestyle across WA by using the popularity of AFL as a tool to engage young people.
The West Coast Eagles have been actively supporting the WA community since the club’s inception in 1986. Recognising the club’s position as a social and community leader, we are constantly striving to increase the ways we can positively contribute to our state.
From helping to develop and grow our national game, improving educational and social outcomes among our youth or raising much-needed funds for local charities, the West Coast Eagles is committed to giving back to the WA community.
In 2015 the West Coast Eagles established the Wirrpanda Foundation to assist positive Indigenous outcomes.
Our community strategy is divided in to four key areas: charitable partnerships, grassroots football, schools and education and diversity programs.
Our inaugural AFLW team commenced in 2020 we have devised a Female Strategy. We hope by exposing young girls to outstanding female role models and exceptional coach education, we can make a positive, meaningful difference both inspiring girls to play the game and improving engagement by females generally in the football community.
