NAB AFL Women's Rising Star

NAB is proud to support the development of female footballers throughout the country from grassroots players and football communities to the NAB AFL Women’s Competition

Each year, the NAB AFLW season culminates with the W Awards, where the League recognises its best and fairest.

The NAB AFL Women's Rising Star Award is the highest honour for a young footballer – they must be under 21, and not suspended during the season. The award is decided by a vote from a panel of experts.
