Inductees 2017 - Jan Cooper

Jan Cooper

Jan Cooper is the AFL'€™s National Manager of Female Football. She has been synonymous with female football development across the nation for more than a decade and has been instrumental in changing female football from a few small leagues across Australia, to having an elite competition for women; the Australian Football League Women.

Jan has led this by driving traditional stakeholders to be inclusive and welcoming of female opportunities in football. Cooper said she was happy to see people finally understanding the role women played in the AFL and reports having had goose bumps when the first AFL Women's game was played earlier in 2017.
