THE BELLARINE Storm senior women’s team will be moving up into the Championship Women’s competition in 2024.

The move is seen as a “vote in confidence” in the continued development of the senior Big V program and women’s team.

Bellarine Storm finished the 2023 season as runners-up to Warrnambool in Division One Women.

Club general manager and assistant coach Aaron Lothian said it was an incredible outcome for the club.

“It is exciting for our club that our Women’s team will join our Senior Men’s team in Championship Division.

“To the players, coaches and management, it is a reward for a very successful 2023 campaign.”

Bellarine Storm will play off against teams including Bulleen, Camberwell, Pakenham, Sherbrooke, McKinnon and Wyndham in the 2024 Championship Women division.

Tim Sanderson will return in 2024 to coach the senior women’s team in their Championship Women’s Division debut season.

“It’s a really great opportunity for us to really test ourselves against some of these best sides,” Sanderson said.

“We’ve just come off a great season and are hopeful of continuing with our momentum in 2024.”
