She Plays NT

More than just a hashtag campaign, the #ShePlaysNT aims to increase the profile of women in sport and encourage more women and girls to be active.

One of the key pillars, identified by the Women in Sport Advisory Committee, is to profile women in sport. By focusing efforts on Territory wide campaign, it is envisaged that we can create the confidence to participate.

We encourage all women and girls to own the hashtag and share it with your networks.


The She Plays NT Ambassadors will share their stories of overcoming hurdles and their triumphs. They want you to know that you are not on your own, we have all been there and we have all struggled to meet those training goals or commitments.

Don’t worry about what others say and do not fear judgement. You have the strength, courage and determination to succeed. Work hard, train hard and be the best that you can be.

It’s about your health and well being.
