Gender & Sex Diversity Policy
Our position
The Flying Bats FC is committed to a safe, fair and inclusive sporting
environment, where all persons, regardless of gender identity or intersex status
can contribute, participate, and be treated fairly with dignity and respect. We
believe in promoting football for all.
We are a women's club, but we recognise that gender isn't binary, and not all
people are, or identify as, female or male, women or men. We also acknowledge
that strong evidence exists that trans, gender diverse and intersex people face
significant barriers to participation in sport, and when they do participate,
frequently face discrimination and harassment. We aim to do what we can as a
club to overcome this.
Who are we and how did we get here?
"It was just sort of amazing in those first few years how open and accepting and
how diverse the whole team was"
Ingrid, player c1986
"I think it's gone from where, we're a group of lesbians that want to play soccer, to
actually we're providing quite an important support resource to people"
Anna, player 2002 onwards, life member.
Why did we need a policy?
“In general FFA will facilitate Transgender persons participating in football with the
gender with which they identify”
Football Federation Australia Member Protection Policy*
“transgression from … norms around gender and sexuality is punished in sport,
and particularly in team sport”
Come Out To Play
*2015
Key points to our policy
FBFC will facilitate registrations from players who identify as women, including
trans and intersex women.
FBFC will facilitate registrations from players who do not identify as women if they:
● are trans, gender diverse (including non-binary and genderqueer) or intersex;
and
● would not feel comfortable or safe playing for a club other than FBFC, and
their exclusion from the club would result in their exclusion from the sport.

our policy
