More women and girls will get involved in sport as part of a NSW Government program which aims to boost participation and create more opportunities, both on and off the field.
The Her Sport Her Way program supports state sporting organisations to deliver new initiatives that turbocharge female sporting participation, whether that’s on the field or in administration, coaching, or volunteer roles.
The program has delivered $2.45 million for projects since 2019, with the latest $625,000 round funding 26 projects across 16 sports.
Successful projects include an initiative to develop netball coaching talent through to participation programs for water polo and karting.
Nationals Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the government is today also opening nominations for the 2022-23 Her Sport Her Way Awards.
“Women make such an incredible contribution to sporting clubs and communities right across NSW, both on and off the field,” Mrs Taylor said.
“The Her Sport Her Way Awards recognise the achievements of women in driving powerful change and leaving a legacy for the way women’s sport is played in NSW.”
The Her Sport Her Way Awards feature five categories – Young Achiever, Local Champion, Outstanding Organisation, Trailblazer, and Overall Champion.
Applications for the Awards close on February 28.
