VicHealth research shows that nearly half of women aged 25 and over find sporting clubs intimidating. And many women are too afraid to try a new activity because they’re afraid of being judged. We want to change that! We want to empower all women to get active and get involved in footy – regardless of their background, age, body shape or ability.
Tell us what changes your club has made to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for women – particularly those who haven’t exercised in a while, or who haven’t tried your club, facility or activity before?
You may like to think about four key strategies outlined in the ‘This Girl Can Victoria – Helping Women and Girls Get Active’ guide and how your club has implemented these.
Tell us in 400 words or less how your club has gone about supporting more women and girls to play footy. Entries close May 31, 2019.
The winning entry will win for their nominated club a $1,000 Footymart voucher to help buy football equipment to support even greater participation at your club.
