The newly appointed Women's Advisory Panel invites everyone interested in Australian women's baseball to a forum to help create the future that we want to see. For the first time we are bringing together a significant proportion of the Australian women's baseball community to consult and colloborate about the way forward for our game.
The night will kick off with guest speaker, Heather Reid, AM, followed by a collective sharing of ideas and opportunities for the improvement and growth of the women's game from grass roots through to high performance.
Heather Reid is a pioneer of Australian sport, instrumental in the development of the women's component of the "round ball" game (soccer) and recognised as a quality administrator as the first woman to lead a State football association. She introduced state representative teams for women in 1980, coached the first ACT Under 15 teams in 1983, pioneered the establishment of a women's world cup and successfully lobbied for the inclusion of women's soccer in the Olympic Games.
We ask that you come to the forum having considered and ready to discuss the question "If there were two things that needed to change to ensure Australian women's baseball had a future, what would they be?"
Registrations are essential, and the forum is open to players (junior and senior), coaches, officials, volunteers, parents ... basically anyone who wants to contribute to the future of Australian Women's Baseball. We encourage everyone to start the conversation now, rather than waiting for the forum, talk to your friends, team-mates, parents and children.
If you cannot attend the forum but are keen to have your thoughts added to the conversation and keep in the loop of the outcomes, select the "Damn - I can't be there" ticket. Once you have registered, click "Contact Us" and send us your "two things."
For further information, please feel free to speak to anyone on the Advisory Panel, or send us an email with your questions.
