The La Trobe University Hockey Club is pleased to announce Round 10 of the official Hockey Victoria winter season as Women’s Round.
Since joining the Women and Girls in Sport Pilot Program, the club has committed to increase participation of women and girls both on and off the field by creating safe, inclusive and welcoming environments. This has has seen the roll out of a number of new initiatives, including upgrades to the clubroom facilities to improve female areas, as well as a refocus on ‘female friendly’ events and social functions.
Women’s Round will be held from June 21st to June 23rd, where we’ll be celebrating our club’s strong women’s history and exciting future for the girls and teams at our club.
Over the weekend members are invited to attend the Hockey Victoria Women & Girls breakfast on the Friday, support the Women’s 2s at home on Saturday and the Women’s 1s at home on Sunday. Both these teams will be wearing pink socks to show our support for the program, as well as both the Men’s 1s and 2s, also playing on the Sunday.
Female life members and others who have contributed to the club will be invited to attend and further discuss how the club can promote safe and inclusive environments for females in sport.
