Council has formed a partnership with Djerriwarrh Health Services to mark 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence by celebrating and recognising women for the various roles that they play in our local sporting communities. This will be the first year of a multi-year project supporting women in sport in the Moorabool Shire.
We are inviting all sporting clubs and associations to nominate a woman in recognition of her contribution to their club or association. To be nominated, the nominee must identify as female and be either linked to a local club/ association, or residing in the Moorabool Shire and making a contribution to sport more broadly or at higher levels. Her impact may be as a player, coach, health adviser, umpire/ referee, on the board of management, through voluntary work, taking up a role or responsibility at your club that few women have done before, consistently going ‘the extra mile’ for your club or sport, or showing strength and resilience in the face of adversity.
We will be inviting nominees to attend a Women in Sport event. Up to 8 women will be awarded as ‘She’s Game’ recipients in 2019. All award recipients will be presented with their award during the event and have a special seat at the event along with guests of her choice.
