The Darebin Women’s Sports Club was founded by women as a club for women and girls to participate in sport in a supportive environment.The explicitly feminist roots of our club’s culture and mission remain unchanged. Further, the DWSC has a proud history and culture of LGBTIQ+ inclusion and both supports and celebrates the LGBTIQ+ diversity of our players, coaches, volunteers and members, both past and present.


Our Gender Inclusion Policy aims to eliminate discrimination on the grounds of gender identity or intersex status.  The DWSC club welcomes:

Everyone as members and volunteers


Women and girls (including trans women and trans girls) and any non-binary person or trans man/trans boy comfortable in a women and girl centred space where their exclusion from the club would result in their exclusion from the sport.

We welcome feedback on the policy content  and the proposed actions to support the embedding of the policy at the club. Download the draft policy by clicking on the button below.

Feedback is welcomed until 15 May via this form from club players, members and supporters. Feedback will be collated with any changes to the Policy considered and adopted. Board endorsement of the policy is scheduled for June.
