About SA Women in Sport

The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing is committed to driving change so women and girls have equitable access and opportunities at all levels and in all aspects of sport, active recreation and racing.

Three key areas to be addressed are:

LEADERSHIP - encouraging strong gender balanced leadership

  • as best practice governance
  • through coaching and officiating
  • in sport administration
  • by volunteers

PARTICIPATION - enabling the participation of all women and girls

  • by playing
  • by coaches and officials
  • at grassroots to elite

PLACES AND SPACES - more choice, more access, more opportunities

  • safe, comfortable and culturally appropriate
  • built facilities and open spaces

We are inviting everyone who supports the vision and aims of the SA Women in Sport Taskforce to make a  commitment to champion equitable access in sport.

You can sign up to the commitment here.


We are also inviting people to share stories about recognising, including and/or promoting the contribution of women at all levels and in all aspects of sport.
