Today we speak with Ashleigh Campbell, President of the youngest club within the CDSFA, Australian Catholic University Football Club, also known as ACU FC.
Ashleigh is also the sports program coordinator at ACU for their Sydney campuses. Based at ACU’s Strathfield campus, ACU FC, established in 2018, is the university's first community club and has quickly taken advantage of a brand new synthetic pitch.
ACU FC was established to provide a football program that services both the student body and local community, with the aim of promoting female participation in sport. The club is inclusive and also offers male programs, with a long-term goal of producing outstanding individuals and leaders, on and off the football field.
As Ashleigh explains in the podcast, ACU FC’s strategic approach to long-term club success is founded on eight fundamental areas:
o female footballers
o quality coaching
o support services
o top class infrastructure
o university culture
o human resources
o financial sustainability; and
o effective governance.
Ashleigh brings along a fresh, modern approach to football administration. She is determined for ACU FC to grow and compete over the coming years with the best teams the CDSFA has to offer in junior and senior football.
