The Women’s Sports Academy exists to help close the gender gap in sports, empowering all Australian women to participate in exercise and access the career pathways offered by sport.
We offer a range of programs providing education, mentoring, support and training to help women reach their full potential in and out of the gym.
Founded by World Powerlifting Champion and psychologist Katrina Robertson, we are passionate about shaping a future where every girl and woman in Australia can reach their full potential in the sporting world, whether as an athlete, coach, administrator, manager or media member.
It’s time to transform the game, creating a more level playing field for women and helping Australian women stay active and healthy.

The 2021 Australian Olympic team saw 254 women (53%) out of 482 athletes. However only less than 10% of the coaches in the Australian Olympic team were women.
In Australia soccer, there are 2,934 accredited coaches and just 137 (4.66%) of them are women. It is also interesting to note that in all Australia female sports, excluding netball, only 25% of the coaching roles are filled by female coaches.
