Interview with Women’s Footballer Jessica Baguley

Meet Women’s Footballer and PARC employee Jessica Baguley

1. Your thoughts on women in football?

I absolutely love women’s football! It’s incredible, the physicality, the endurance and the mateship that’s involved in women’s football is fantastic. You feel like you’re part of a family in a sense and you win together and you lose together. It’s a rewarding sport and pushes me harder than any other sport I’ve tried. I see women’s football evolving into more towards the men’s league with more teams, skill development and more teams at an elite level.

2. How long have you been playing?

This year will be my fourth year playing football. I started in the juniors in 2014 and transitioned into the Senior Women’s side in 2015 for Seaford Tigerettes with the possibility of getting selected for the VFL Women’s League. I play centre half forward, wing, centre half back and ruck.

3. Your training methods (inside and outside of PARC)?

Training methods is a lot of running. 2 minutes running x 6 with 1 minute break twice a week (which I cover 400m each block roughly) followed by another run during the week and two weights sessions at PARC which include chin ups, squats, abs sessions, etc in the week as well as a hydro recovery session to help the recovery process. I am currently completing personal training with Jayden to focus on some sport specific conditioning and development.

4. What would you say to any girls wanting to play football?

It is so possible now to get into girls football as there is so many teams and clubs with competitions in every league. It’s great to see it now being promoted through AFL and televised so there are many role models to look up to.
