Mount Alexander Women’s Sports Club aspire to create a community where women and gender diverse people play, live, compete and dream free of gender constraints. To us, sport is a gateway to the wider society, and we actively work towards a community where equality is realised for all women and diverse people.
Our Mission is to create a safe, respectful and inclusive environment where women and gender diverse people thrive through sport, on and off the field. The Mount Alexander Falcons pride ourselves on providing opportunities for developing skills, strength and stamina; confidence and leadership; and comradery and friendship. We are our own role models and take this belief with us to the wider community.
We encourage equality, diversity, inclusion, and fairness.
We provide the opportunity for women and gender diverse people to be proud, strong and support each other to be the best that we can be.
We use sport to develop skills, push personal limits, work together as a team, build confidence, and expand friendship circles – while always having fun.
