History made at Ikon Park

Parkin's stirring launch speech Carlton Coach of the Century David Parkin was on hand as the Blues' AFLW team held their first ever training session last night.

Carlton’s women’s team has taken to the track at its inaugural pre-season training session on Wednesday night at Ikon Park. 

Led by senior coach Damien Keeping, the 27-woman squad saw its elite training facilities for the first time with a pre-training address in the locker room from Carlton three-time premiership coach David Parkin. 

After running out to a thunderous cheer from a number of supporters in the stands, the squad ran through a number of drills and football skills. 

The inaugural AFL Women’s competition will kick off in February, with the fixture to be released in the coming weeks.
