The NSW Waratahs will be wearing specially made shirts during their Super W warm-ups this season in support of The [Female] Athlete Project.
It aims to put female athletes on a level playing field with their male counterparts and incorporates statistics to educate people on the growth of women’s sport on a professional scale.
“It was an idea I had for a while and it started when I’d go down to the beach and grab a coffee and the paper, flick to the back page and couldn’t find anything about women’s sport,” Dalton said.
“It was originally just a podcast where I would interview elite female athletes to help give them the recognition they deserve and has since grown through Instagram and now merchandise.”
NSW Waratahs CEO, Paul Doorn is excited for the season to kick-off and to be supporting a very important cause.
“Getting more female sport on TV and enabling more people to see their talent is a big focus for us as a club, so it is great that we can help spread the message of The Female Athlete Project,” Doorn said.
Dalton has designed exclusive blue TFAP shirts for the Waratahs Super W squad to help spread the message.
“It’s really special that we’ve had blue shirts made for the girls to wear during their warm-ups at Super W,” Dalton said.
“It’s amazing to see how they’ve embraced it and they are all really keen to wear them.”
The NSW Waratahs Super W squad kick-off their season this Saturday in Brisbane where they will sport their exclusive TFAP apparel for the first time.
