The time for women’s sport is now!
- Open Women’s
The GCDRU has a clear vision for growing women and girls’ participation in Rugby across the Gold Coast, building on the strong foundations our code has developed in recent years.
Working hand in hand with our Clubs, community partners and stakeholders, the GCDRU has developed a Women’s Rugby Plan that aligns with the organisation’s overall strategic plan. Our plan is designed to provide opportunities to women and girls through a connected pathway that will provide opportunities at a participation and high performance level. But it goes beyond just players as we want to grow women’s involvement in our game as a whole, from coaches to referees to administrators.
Partnerships will be at the core of our plan, not only with our key stakeholders and Clubs, but with local communities, corporate Australia as well as Government agencies. Working with a broader network of stakeholders and supporters who share our passion will be key to bringing this plan to life.
With the surge of media and corporate interest in women’s sport, the GCDRU is keen to maximise that interest and showcase to women and girls around the Gold Coast. Statistics show in Australia the number of girls participating in physical activity is dropping, but we know Rugby can play an important role in getting more women and girls playing sport and staying in sport.
Our unique product offerings mean there is something for everyone. We look forward to sharing the journey with you all!
