Ararat Storm will make a decision on the future of the club for the 2019 season on Wednesday night.
The committee will meet to discuss the decline in player numbers and the need to inform the AFL Goldfields Female Football League whether it is viable to enter a team in the competition for 2019.
Storm lost players from last season due to age restrictions and have found a lack of players willing to commit to the club.
A plea for a coach and administrative volunteers was expressed from former players in March, with things looking positive for the club.
Melissa Bibby signed on as coach and Simon Caine took the reins as president.

Mr Caine expressed his disappointment at the possibility of Storm not entering a side. "We've done some promotional work on social media and also tried to recruit players through the schools," he said.
"It just hasn't seemed to evolve and have players commit and come to training.
"We don't know why - we are thinking it could be that the games are on Sundays and parents might not want to commit to a day of sport on the weekend."
Mr Caine said a decision will be made at the committee meeting on Wednesday.
"We will go through what we need to do and come to an agreement for the season," he said.
"The season commences in three weeks and the league needs to know what our intentions will be.
"The league is able to see what players are registered through the season and could see our numbers have dropped off."

AFL Goldfields Female Football operations manager Krista Woodroffe said losing the team in the competition would be a detriment to the game in the area.
"It's a tough landscape with female footy," she said.
"It is a booming enterprise in one respect but the hard part with the Ararat Storm is their link with a local club and being a separate entity and not have a formal link with any particular club in the competition.
"With the Western Region competition coming into the area, we've found girls have either stayed at Ararat or moved into the Deakin competition."
Ararat Storm was originally the only female football team in the region before the development of the Deakin University Female Football League.
