Southern Steelers Sports
If you’re a Southern Steeler, you’re committed to nurturing healthy lifestyles, personal development and a sense of belonging for all women and girls through enjoyable and affordable sporting opportunities.
Steelers Connect is an initiative of Steelers Sports established with the goal of engaging more young girls and teens from multicultural and low socioeconomic backgrounds in sport and providing them with meaningful, ongoing opportunities that nurture their personal development and inspire them to reach their full potential. Funds are used in 2 ways:
To provide fee subsidies and financial support for purchasing uniforms and lower the financial barrier to participating in the sport; and
To put girls through Coaching and Umpiring Qualifications. Girls use these skills to give back to the community and share their knowledge with other players.
Steelers Connect is seeing girls and young women get involved in the sport who might not otherwise have the means to do so and is building the capacity to give back to sport through coaching and umpiring.
