Game on for Women

Closing the gender gap in sport 

We are committed to supporting Logan women in sport as players, coaches, officials, and leaders. The aim of Game on for Women is nurture women to become leaders in sport on and off the field.

We know that many women play sport, but not as often as men. Women face barriers that can make it harder for them to start playing and stay involved in sport.

Watch our Game on for Women YouTube video that showcases our very own Logan sports legends.

Note: The Game on for Women program was developed with the support of the Queensland Government’s Active Kit Funding in association with Logan City Council and Brisbane LIONS..
