Our Ambassador Programme aims to increase participation in girls’ sports through identifying aspirational young female leaders and enabling them to inspire those around them to participate in sport. We’re not looking for the best player in the team, we’re looking for girls willing and passionate about kicking goals and helping grow girls’ sport in New Zealand. Ambassadors must be enrolled in a secondary school in NZ (any age), have initiative and able to communicate with all age groups, and be passionate about participation of girls sport.
