“I thought it was really strange. I’d never seen girls play footy before!”


Kaitlyn Ashmore’s journey to the AFLW big time didn’t start from birth. She wasn’t kicking a footy when she came out of the womb and she sure wasn’t enthralled by the game before she could talk.


In fact, she grew up with a family heavily involved in baseball and athletics, which she thrived on until she hit high school.


However, Ashmore’s journey to make her mark in the Inaugural AFL Women’s Competition is an inspiring one and an adventure that she’s taken on board with open arms.
