It’s time to get up, get involved and get active! This week is ‘This Girl Can Week’ and a year on after the campaign begun, over 285,000 women across Victoria have become more active!
This Girl Can Week is dedicated to inspiring women of all fitness levels to get active, whether trying something new or returning to an activity after a break. This Girl Can is about giving it a go; no matter how well you do it, how you look, or how sweaty you get.
So if you have been looking for a new avenue or adventure to get out and get active, now is the perfect time to do so!
Basketball Victoria has teamed up with VicHealth and a few of our associations who are running a number of different female only activities throughout the week to help you kick start your activity.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend or two and come along to one (or more) of the below activations:
