The AFL Southern Women's competition could expand further to nine teams next year, with Collingullie-Glenfield Park and Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong putting forward expressions of interest to participate.
Both clubs are currently gauging the levels of interests from female players before deciding whether to submit an application to play in the Friday night competition, which grew to seven teams last year after Narrandera, East Wagga Kooringal and North Wagga joined.
Women's football is the biggest potential growth area in the sport, with Greater Western Sydney Giants Academy recently announcing they will start a women's in Wagga program later this year.
Lions player Alice Kenny played two years with CSU in 2018 and 2019, and said a Lions team would add another dimension to the club.
"We're just seeing if there's enough interest around the club to put it together, but I think it'd be great," she said.
"There's a few girls who've already said they're keen, we've still got a few more numbers to put together but it's looking positive.
Kenny has coached GGGM's netball team the past few seasons, but stood aside at the end of the 2020 campaign.
She said the proposed football schedule, which features six rounds on Friday nights starting on February 12, and the final on March 26, shouldn't interfere too much with netball.
"It should be fine, there's not much overlap with the season," she said.
"I played two years before last year with CSU. They get a lot of assistance from their footy boys and that's what we're trying to establish, a supportive and whole club atmosphere.
"We've started conversations with a few people about coaching, so hopefully we can get the ball rolling."
Southern NSW community football and competition manager Tom Walker said it's encouraging to see other clubs keen to further grow the women's game.
"It's fantastic to see our clubs work to promote women's football. It's a growth area of our sport and is getting greater interest each year. It makes sense that clubs are looking to start a women's team," he said.
"We simply will trust clubs to make sure they've got the numbers to participate, there's no real criteria.
"The whole idea of the competition is to provide an opportunity for anyone wanting to take up the game."
Depending on the number of teams participating, there is scope to expand the season into a seventh round, with finals to be held on Easter Thursday.
Team applications are due to close on Friday, January 15.
