If there’s one thing that brings communities together — it’s sport. Which is why Holden started the Home Ground Advantage program in 2014 — to help grassroots sport grow. When it comes to sport, girls can now pursue the same dreams as boys! Our 2018 winter round will provide grants to sporting clubs who embrace and promote the participation of girls. If your sporting club is looking for funding for projects like facility upgrades, new uniforms or equipment to enable more girls to get involved, we want to hear from you!
Are you a club embracing and promoting girls’ participation?Apply now!
For girls or women wondering if they should give rugby league a go, I say - do it! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I'm so passionate about opportunities at a grassroots level, I'd encourage girls to just get out there and give as many sports a go as possible.
As a junior, the Surf Lifesaving movement gave me the confidence and skills to pursue my dream of becoming an Ironwoman. If you set your mind to it, great things can happen!
Netball has helped me find my inner competitive nature and the appreciation of teammates! It's given me the confidence to give anything in life a go.
