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.

Basketball SA’s Female Participation Strategy responds to the South Australian Government’s ambition to grow the number of active female sport participants in South Australia. The strategy developed by Basketball SA aims to address low female sports participation, sporting engagement for rural and remote communities, and long term retention and pathway opportunities. Together with our Members and the Adelaide Lightning, it is our vision that females are represented in all roles of sport and active recreation.

Female Participation Strategy seeks to build an environment that supports, encourages and
appreciates the impact females have in sport and recreation
