Peninsula Strikers Junior Football Club player Brooke.

Olympian and former Matildas player Tal Karp will be the guest speaker at an online forum tomorrow designed to increase female participation in sport. Frankston City Council will host the forum from 8-9.30am and is inviting players, potential players, sports club volunteers and parents to register for free so they can share their experiences and workshop ideas on how to create welcoming club cultures.

It’s one of two workshops the council is holding this month to increase opportunities for those who identify as female to be involved in every aspect of our sporting clubs. The second is on June 16 for club staff and committee members and will include a Frankston club case study. Umpire Chelsea Roffey, the first and only woman to have officiated in an AFL Grand Final, will be a guest speaker at this workshop, which will look at elements that might prevent females from playing and taking on leadership roles within clubs, and the benefits of increasing female membership.

A recent survey of sporting clubs in the municipality showed that people who identify as female make up only 39 per cent of participants – a proportion Cr Claire Harvey said the council was keen to increase. “When you think of all the benefits that come with staying active, playing sport and being connected to your community, that number is too low,” Cr Harvey said. “So we need to better understand the barriers for girls and women in joining clubs and to discuss solutions with them that can be put into practice easily. The workshops will focus on developing cultures that are welcoming and inclusive, so that girls and young women who want to play any sport – and be a part of the club in any capacity – can sign up without hesitation.”
