- Establishing women’s and girl’s programs
- Establishment of social sports programs for women (SoccerMums, Rock up Netball, Social Sixes)
- Club based Gender Equity Workshops
- Come and try days
- Teen girl specific programs (high rates of drop out so could also focus on retention)
- Player development
- Capacity building for Female Committee Members (current or potential)
- Development of skills for women and girls in the areas of officiating, coaching, sport leadership.
- Any programs that lead to increased participation in sport on and off the field by women and girls
