Examples of eligible programs include:

An AFL club wishes to increase its female membership therefore offers a six week girl’s only introduction to the sport. Participants are able to try the sport through this six week program and can then sign up for a full season membership if they enjoy the program.

A triathlon club would like to attract younger members to the organisation. The club develops a 10 week introduction program to the sport of triathlon which culminates in the participants competing in a small triathlon to put into practice what they have learnt.
