Looking to Develop Your Club’s Female Participation?

Female Participation Program

As time progresses, it becomes more imperative that sport is accessible to everyone. Any Club with ambitious growth goals must understand that diversifying participation to include Females and an inclusive member base is essential and one of the easiest ways to grow your Club.

The Female Participation Program is all about finding ways to diversify your Club by appealing a wider range of potential participants.



What does a Female Participation Program Include?

  • Club Builder’s Strategic Female & Inclusive Participation Framework
  • A concise Club Action Plan, detailing the next steps that the Club needs to take to implement the plan
  • Identification of areas of opportunity for the Club based on sport, location, demographics, and other factors
  • Visualisations of multiple future growth scenarios for the Club’s teams and players, with specific analysis of growth by age-group, development phase, program, and gender

Upon completion, the comprehensive plan is the Club’s to keep and is presented to the Club’s committee at the Boardroom Briefing.
