THE BOARD of Directors of the Carlton Football Club have initiated a review of the Club’s AFLW program. 

The review will involve a thorough analysis of the program’s performance over the last few seasons, while also looking at what is required to improve all aspects of the program moving forward. 

Carlton President Luke Sayers confirmed the implementation of the review in an email to members earlier this afternoon. 

“We are using this period of time to undergo a process of review throughout our AFLW program,” Sayers wrote. 

“This process has been initiated at the direction of the Board, in order to create a clear picture on how we can effectively shape the program moving forward, to put us in the best possible position to strive for on and off-field success. 

“Our AFLW program has experienced a big 2022, playing an unprecedented two seasons in the one year.   

“Clearly though, those seasons didn’t produce the on-field results we were hoping for and as a Board, we have a responsibility to be proactive to ensure we explore all avenues for improvement. 

“We will closely analyse where we are at as an AFLW program and ensure we are set up to not only improve the overall performance of the team but establish ourselves for the long-term as the competition evolves.” 

The review process is now underway and will continue into the new year to allow it the necessary time to be completed.   

The Club will be in a position to provide further updates once the review has reached its conclusion.
