The Objectives of the Girls Got Game program are:

Reduce the attrition rate across the continuum of women and girls in Basketball in Victoria.

To provide Associations with opportunities to promote women and girls in Basketball in Victoria.

Year 1 will concentrate primarily on female players, extending to female coaches in year 2 and female technical officials in year 3.

Work has begun on the program with a launch at the MUVJBL AGM on Wednesday 26th March.http://youtu.be/zou_7u0lLGM

Female players will be identified each week at MUVJBL games with strict criteria supporting how they showed they have game with the public able to vote on the Player of the Week. The winner will be presented with a Girls Got Game t-shirt at her game the following week. High profile female Ambassadors will be appointed throughout the year.

Need For Change:

As with many industries, women are under-represented in key decision making positions and in sport, the retention and profile of females is of great concern. Key barriers to participation include: Pressures on families; inadequate facilities; social isolation to name a few. 

Basketball Victoria is committed to providing a gender-inclusive culture and supporting mechanisms to assist in the recruitment and retention of all people to our sport.

The Basketball Victoria Participation Census (2012) highlighted the gender inequity (35% females / 65% males) of participation in Basketball of women and girls.

The VJBL additional analysis shows a gender inequity of 40% females compared to 60% males (2013/14) participating in the League crossing all areas of participation: players, referees and coaches. 

Further to this, BigV has identified an inequity of 40% females compared to 60% males.
