So where did the name come from?
Originating in Adelaide, The Flying Bats were born when some of the founding members moved to Sydney. The founding members were sitting outside one night wondering what they could call the club when a flock of bats flew across the evening sky – and the name just stuck. As an incorporated association we have a Management Committee who organise and run the club. The Management Committee are all unpaid volunteers who devote their free time to maintaining a safe and enjoyable football experience for all our players, as we all have one common belief – that there should be a Flying Bats Football Club in Sydney!
Our philosophy is very simply:
- Play football to the best of your ability.
- Have fun and enjoy yourself.
- Support your fellow team mates, on and off the pitch.
- Display good sportswomanship and respect to all players, supporters, opposition teams and official.
As an affiliated club, we are bound by the Code of Conduct as published on the North West Sydney Women’s Football Association web site www.nwswf.com.au.
