In order to effect change, the VJBL has initiated the Girls Got Game program fully supported by Basketball Victoria.
The Objectives of the Girls Got Game program are:
To increase the profile of women and girls participation in Basketball in Victoria.
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 VJBL AGM on Wednesday 26th March.http://youtu.be/zou_7u0lLGM
Female players will be identified each week at VJBL 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.
