About the Northwest Lightning

The Northwest Lightning Alliance is the initiative of Pennant Hills, Westbrook and Hornsby Junior football clubs enabling the introduction and growth of Girls AFL in our region. The values of fun, development and participation have made the North West Lightning games some of the most positive and enjoyable experiences for players and spectators. 

The alliance’s inaugural season was in 2016 with the clubs combining to form an U14s team. This grew quickly and in 2017 we fielded teams in the Under 15s and an Under 12s. By 2020 the alliance fielded teams across all age divisions in the AFL Sydney Harbour competition.

The team’s first premiership was secured in 2023 with the North West Lightning victorious in the grand final for the YG12s Blue division.

The North West Lightning will field teams across all age divisions in 2024.
