The Sydney Sixers are committed to the inclusion of transgender and gender diverse people from community to elite level sport. In developing the following strategy, the club has reaffirmed its social responsibility to encourage others to be themselves, supporting clubs and associations to welcome and include those from diverse backgrounds, and host Pride themed women’s and men’s Big Bash League games to highlight the importance of inclusion to the wider community. Working closely with LGBT Charity Proud2Play, the following plan has been devised for the 2019-20 season:
Rainbow Families Come and Try Event
70 kids from Rainbow Families are expected to enjoy a clinic and activities as provided by the Sydney Sixers on November 9 as part of the Rainbow Families Kids Resilience Camp at Narrabeen. The goal is to develop enough interest from the families to establish an all-inclusive social introductory cricket program for all ages based at a local cricket club/s.
Benefits for local cricket clubs:
Pride Party WBBL
