Sports Participation in Children

I was looking on the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)  website to find statistics on children and sports participation. I found one article in particle that talks about children’s participation in organised sport. The stats show that participation in organised sports drops for kids aged between 12-14 years of age.

One of the statistics shows that Netball is the second most popular sport among girls (16%). I thought this statistic was relevant to my feature because the construction of the new pavillion will help the local netball association, Caulfield and District Netball Association (CDNA).

I looked on the Glen Eira City Council website for updates/news about the construction of the pavilion and found a few mentions of it in one of their city council news PDF. There is a news article that writes about the commencement of the works to the pavilion and also includes an artists impression on what the pavilion will look like.
