Community Sport Coaching
Australian Sports Commission


Australian and New Zealand sports organisations, and many other national sports bodies from around the world, recognise that the benefits of sport are best achieved when programs and opportunities are inclusive. Gender should not be a limiting factor for participation in sport and other forms of physical activity.  


Key Messages 


Gender is a defining factor of sporting opportunities, funding and recognition.


Gender equity in sport is part of an inclusive policy framework.
