Motion to collect sports stats passed
DATA will be collected from City of Vincent sporting clubs to determine the ratio of male to female members.
Councillor Susan Gontaszewski’s motion to obtain the details to inform strategies to improve participation and accessibility by women and girls was passed unanimously last month.
Information will be collected as part of a current review passed in May this year of the sportsground seasonal hire fees and charges, which is expected to be reported to council by October.
Cr Gontaszewski said she thought local government had a role to play in facilitating equitable access to sports grounds and facilities so that everybody had access to sporting opportunities.
Cr Matt Buckels suggested that the City engage with youths directly in future and ask them what sporting facilities they would like.
