Managing (dis)ability, gender and cultural diversity in junior sport.
This report presents the results of a three-year research project on how diversity is managed in junior sport. The research was conducted collaboratively by Victoria University, Swinburne University of Technology, Curtin University and Monash University, in partnership with VicHealth, Australian Football League (AFL) and the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY).
It provides recommendations for community sports clubs, such as developing inclusive policies, promoting diversity champions, and balancing participation and performance.
