Orange Round

Orange Round is back for its 10th year

Designed to tackle family violence while promoting gender equality in sports, Orange Round calls upon sports clubs across Gippsland to make a powerful statement this winter.

Clubs and codes across Gippsland have hosted Orange Rounds since 2015, with orange goalpost covers declaring clubs’ emphasis on respect, players wearing orange armbands in a show of solidarity, and GippSport staff offering the option to learn more about gender equity and family violence prevention in sports clubs. Previous hosts have shared how important it was for them to take this visible stance in their community, and some enlisted GippSport for gender audits and in-club education sessions to ensure the work they are doing is cemented and sustainable.

We invite you to register your club to host an Orange Round between May 25 and June 25, starting conversations and sharing understanding around this important issue. Together, let’s make a difference – one game, one club, one community at a time.
