All-Gender Game Series 2023
Melbourne University Soccer Club is putting a call out for trans, gender diverse and queer soccer players to register their interest to participate in our All Gender Games Series in March 2023
The series is now back in 2023, with anyone who identifies at trans, gender diverse or queer invited to register their interest.
In March of 2021, MUSC held the inaugural All-Gender Game Series for trans, gender diverse and queer players in the off-season, with the support of Change Our Game grant from the Victorian Government’s Office for Women in Sport and Recreation (OWSR).
AGGs specifically cater to players who may be excluded during the regular season due to being trans or gender diverse. Sport is a driver of social change, and with this series, MUSC seeks to support LGBTQI+ physical and mental health through fostering community in a safe space. Doing so is of the utmost importance in Victoria as the LGBTQI+ community statistically experiences poorer mental health outcomes than the general population. We believe that one of the best means to recover from the effects of isolation, is physical activity and connecting with others of similar lived-in experience. MUSC wants to ensure that LGBTQIs as a minority community are allocated the resources needed to participate in sport and reap its benefits.
This event is made possible through the support of the City of Melbourne, Melbourne University Sport, Football Victoria and This Is Football Australia.
