Kick Like a Girl: Round 3 Reviews with Geelong Cats Player Erin Hoare
Erin Hoare of the AFLW Geelong Cats joins Kick Like a Girl host Kate O’Halloran to review Round 3 of the AFLW season. Despite the Cats’ loss against the Crows over the weekend at Adelaide’s Norwood Oval, Erin still has plenty of great things to say about women’s football.
Growing up playing netball near the GMHBA Stadium, Erin thinks it’s great to be now representing Geelong’s first ever women’s football team. Wearing a Guernsey and being able train, play and have access to the same space as male athletes Erin has found to be quite incredible. Says Erin, ‘The Geelong Football Club have been an absolutely phenomenal support to us coming into the program.’
When talking about some of the negative attitudes towards women in sport and the effect this could have on younger generations, Erin says ‘It’s understanding what our words do and what our attitudes do and how that affects young people. Let’s empower and inspire not give roles and expectations that may not suit them.’
