The Female Participation Strategy uses a collaborative approach to engage females in the sport of basketball, and develop increased confidence, community spirit and leadership skills.

Governments across the country are asking sports to make a commitment to female participation. Through the Female Participation Strategy, Basketball SA shows our sport to be a front runner. 

Girls and women that have a positive experience as players are more likely to move into other roles at the end of (or even during) their playing career and also bring their own children to the sport. 

There are two key elements for success: A club culture that fosters female participation, and Getting strategies in place early!
