Introducing women and girls in sport: Quick wins for community clubs
Quick Wins is supporting clubs to increase promotion, participation and leadership opportunities for women and girls.
An initiative of VicHealth and delivered by Sports Central, clubs are encouraged to work their way through a ten-question assessment which looks at their current environment. Two key actions are then identified and implemented.
Clubs will benefit from small, but impactful improvements. Some examples include:
- Creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for women and girls
- Increased awareness of gender equality
- Potential to increase participation of women and girls
- Potential to increase promotion of women and girls in sport
- Potential to increase females taking on leadership roles within the club
- Potential to promote the club as industry leaders
- Potential to increase grant application success
Sports Central has supported the following clubs and associations to complete their Quick Wins checklist and are looking to work with many more over the winter season.
- Basketball Ballarat
- Voga Cycling Club
- Bacchus Marsh Cricket Club ‘
- Ballarat Squash and Racquetball
- East Ballarat Cricket Club
- Bacchus Marsh Netball Association
- Daylesford Martial Arts
- Bacchus Marsh Scorpions Soccer Club
- Ballarat Futsul
- Grenville Tennis Club
At this point in time, clubs are encouraged to complete the ten-question assessment. Sports Central will then make contact and work with you to identify the two actions for the club to implement.
