Yorga’s Koodjal Kadadjiny

The biennial ‘Yorga’s Koodjal Kadadjiny’, meaning Women’s Two Way Learning Match, is played to promote the mutually respectful relationship between our indigenous and non-indigenous female football players.


The match was born from an idea by Charlie Headland and Paula Hicks to celebrate indigenous Australian women’s love of playing football and promote reconciliation between all players.


Run by the WA Women’s Football League, the West Australian Football Commission and a Yorga Match Committee, the 'Yorga Match' is a fantastic game that brings current WAWFL players together to play in different team.


Each match pays tribute to Sharon Woods and Elizabeth Kickett, who were significant contributors to the WAWFL during its formative years, with the Best on Ground award named after Sharon Woods, and the winning team awarded the Elizabeth Kickett Memorial Shield.
