We are informal, inclusive, interactive and inspiring. We are the 'IN' in Women in Sport.

Our focus is on girls and women in sport from playground to grassroots through to elite females sport. This can be  achieved by championing the inner girl in all of us. What we like to call the #everydaygirl.

 

Through the use of social media platforms ,Women In Sport WA creates content by story telling, showcasing photography,  producing podcasts and prompt the conversations that can help reduce barriers for females in sport. Women In Sport WA invites you to join us on our journey.
