WOMEN IN LEAGUE Round
This Saturday 6th August is the NRL's annual Women In League Round.
NRL Victoria will also have their Round 15 Seniors / 13 Juniors round this Saturday.
The Women in League Round is a very significant occasion as we recognise and acknowledge the wonderful women in our game, the players, parents, referees, team officals, committee members and all other volunteers.
NRL Victoria are fortunate to have many women involved in all levels of the game at our respective clubs. The women/girls game in Victoria has never been stronger with our Girls Tag, Women's Tag and Tackle competitions, not to mention the junior players under 12 years or age competing against the boys.
So make sure you get out and about this Saturday at one of the local venues and say thank you to the hardworking women involved in our game. Fixtures attached in the link below:
See below some information regarding Women in our game from a National Level:
More than 482,000 girls and women participate in a form of touch, tag or tackle nationally; a further 2,000 female coaches, sports trainers and referees are involved our game; and we have 68,000 female members across the 16 NRL clubs.
At the elite level, our women’s teams have had a huge year in 2016 – competing at Downer Auckland Nines, All Stars clash at Suncorp Stadium, the double header Test Match in May and a fortnight ago, the New South Wales women’s team won the Nellie Doherty Cup against Queensland on the Gold Coast.
At board level, the game has 15 female board members, including two Chairwomen and a Commissioner.
Women are a vital part of our game’s continued success and the past decade in particular has seen tremendous support, opportunity and media exposure for girls and women right across our game.
