Women Lead at Council Sports Awards

SportSim News

It was a night to remember for local sporting clubs, athletes and volunteers at the 2017 City of Melton Sports Award Night.   

Local clubs and teams from a diverse range of football, netball, soccer, cricket, hockey, athletics, swimming and disabled riding clubs all featured.   

The guest speaker was AFLW superstar Moana Hope, who shared her inspirational stories with an all female panel. 

A pre-recorded video from Olympic Champion aerial skier Lydia Lassila (and former SportSim reaction wall user!) featured as well - one of the key awards is named in her honour.  

The real highlight of the night was the huge increase in female sports participation rates since 2015, with the number of females engaged in organized team and individual events having tripled in some cases.

The broad media coverage of the AFLW, high profile success of the Australian women’s soccer team and the Women’s Big Bash Cricket League all were highlighted as reasons for the huge growth in interest. 

Of course this means decisions for local government in  budget allocations to cater for this, a point highlighted by the City of Melton Mayor, Sophie Ramsey.

Sophie also chipped in that the "SportSim Australian Football simulator was a fantastic feature of the night!"   

SportSim tailored the Aussie Rules kicking simulator to suit the attendees, by adjusting the difficulty levels of the extremely popular kicking challenge for the adults (i.e. big kids) back to an easier setting for the large number of children in attendance.   

If you have an Awards night coming up, and you need a new idea for an interactive activity that can be accessed by all skill and age levels, contact SportSim today.
