MELBOURNE Cheap Curry Shoes Wholesale , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- A young Australian woman will become the first female to umpire an official Australian Football League (AFL) game this weekend, in a move the competition's leaders hope will pave the way for more female involvement in the male-dominated sport.
In almost 120 years of Victorian Football League (VFL)AFL history, a woman has never officiated at the elite level of Australian rules football.
But on Tuesday, the AFL announced that 23-year-old umpire Eleni Glouftsis would break the mould, naming the South Australian as one of three field umpires for Sunday's preseason match between Essendon and Carlton in Melbourne.
Umpires boss Wayne Campbell said female engagement in the sport was at an all-time high, and Glouftsis' journey up the ranks showed girls were able to make a full-time career out of football.
"We think umpiring is in a really good spot around Australia - our numbers are up by 15 percent on last year Cheap Curry Shoes Online ," Campbell told reporters at AFL House on Tuesday.
"We still only have eight percent of that number as females, but we go to lots of community groups and there's lot of females getting involved."
Australian rules football is considered one of the toughest sports in the world to officiate due to its ever-changing rules and the laws of the game allowing for a high degree of interpretation.
Glouftsis moved to Melbourne, the birthplace of the code, in the middle of 2015 after she received an AFL Female Pathway Scholarship.
Campbell said Glouftsis could be a powerful tool in the AFL's bid to create a more inclusive environment for females, in an industry which has been dominated by men for more than a century.
"We need a trailblazer, and we'd love her to be that. We'd love her to umpire one AFL game (and) we'd love her to umpire 100 AFL games. That will depend on how she goes Cheap Curry Shoes Clearance ," Campbell said.
"We might be a bit biased, but in terms of gender equality or females having an impact on footy, to have a girl in the middle of the MCG or Adelaide Oval bouncing the ball, we think would be a pretty good look."
Despite her groundbreaking selection, Glouftsis was realistic about the prospect of earning an umpiring gig during this year's AFL home and away season, beginning late next month Cheap Curry 6 Shoes , due to her "rookie" status.
"This year being a rookie will be a fantastic step, like being involved on gameday and talking to the umpires and seeing what they do on the field will be such a fantastic experience," Glouftsis, who has umpired since she was 13-years-old, told reporters on Tuesday.
"If I can keep progressing and see how I go in the next few years I'll be happy with that."
The announcement is another example of the AFL slowly breaking down previously impenetrable barriers for women one-by-one.
In 2012, the competition picked Chelsea Roffey to be a goal umpire on grand final day in a league first.
The next year Cheap Curry 5 Shoes , one of Melbourne's biggest teams, Richmond, elected Peggy O'Neal as club president - the first woman to reach the post in the VFLAFL history.
On Saturday, the AFL put years of speculation to bed, establishing an eight-team women's competition for 2017 and beyond.
Choosing A College Major
Posted by nick_niesen on October 27th, 2010
Once you are accepted into a college and begin taking classes Cheap Curry 4 Shoes , the next step is to decide on a major. Most college graduates change their major several times before they finally pick one and stick to it, so it is important not to get discouraged if you have a hard time deciding right away. However, there are some factors to consider beyond your general interests when you decide the subject on which you will focus your studies. It will take a lot of research and soul-searching for you to find a good and somewhat practical match for your interests and lifelong goals.
The first thing to consider when choosing a college major is what interests you the most. Some subjects are more financially lucrative than others, but there is no sense in studying a subject that will make you miserable once you begin working in your field. It is obvious that business, sales and marketing degrees tend to put you on the path toward financial wellbeing, but if you are not interested in the business world you will find that you do not enjoy your chosen career path. Rather than choosing something simply because of future financial benefits Cheap Curry 3 Shoes , try exploring a variety of options before locking down on one. If financial status is major goal, take a variety of science classes to see if those suit your fancy.
However, practicality should be considered when you choose your major. You should evaluate that reasons you are in college, and plan your course of study accordingly. If you are attending strictly to gain general knowledge and experiences, then choosing something simply because you are interested in it might be an acceptable way to go. If you enjoy reading and writing, getting a degree in English might be beneficial to you. However Cheap Curry 2 Shoes , English degrees are not quite as marketable as business or science degrees.
If you are unclear about your interests when you first enter college, rest assured that you are not alone. Many people look at their undergraduate experience as a way to get acquainted with themselves in an intellectual and a personal way. Take a wide variety of classes during your basic coursework, and you might find that your major finds you. If you tend to enjoy psychology classes more than anything else, you might consider majoring in the subject, especially if you plan to attend graduate school.
Keep in mind that you can always change your major. Granted, you may end up spending more time in college than you had originally planned Cheap Curry 1 Shoes , but if you look at it as a journey of exploration, you will find that you will learn more from your college years than you would if you had the get in and get out mindset.
