Past Events presented by WSRT
Womensport & Recreation Tas hosted the 2015 School Girls' Breakfast on the 31st July at the Blundstone Arena Function Centre, Bellerive.
Girls aged 12-16 years were invited to attend along with a supportive parent, coach, mentor or friend for a shared learning experience.
The School Girls' Breakfast was an exciting opportunity to showcase career pathways in the sport and recreation sector to support future leaders who may one day influence, manage, coach and mentor others.

Tasmanian School Girls' Breakfast
21st November 2014
Womensport & Recreation Tasmania Inc, is a not for profit organisation advocating, supporting and delivering physical activity and recreational programs and opportunities for Tasmanians with a focus on encouraging women and girls to enjoy the benefits of being healthy and active.
WSRT hosted the inaugural 2014 Leadership Conference - Changing the Game, in Hobart on 21st November.
The breakfast, conference and trade show focused on current and emerging topics and practice in areas relating to the promotion of, access to and safe participation in and growth of sports, physical activity and recreational opportunities for Tasmanian girls and women.
Changing demographics are changing the way women watch, participate and support sport. So how do clubs respond to this and marketing to female sports fans to grow their membership?
It is important to find practical solutions to respond to these challenges, and these are just some of the issues that we will be exploring over the course of the School Girl's Breakfast and the Women in Sport Leadership Conference.
Community obesity and chronic illness levels are rising. We see a significant drop out of girls from competitive sports around the age of 14 years of age. Women's events are not profiled in the media to the same extent as men's, and corporate sponsorship of women's sport lags well behind despite the business case for commercial investment being strong.
Extensive research shows that a diverse board makes for better decision making and more effective organisations; yet Boards find it difficult to attract female directors.
