This Girl Can – Victoria celebrates and supports Victorian women and girls who want to embrace physical activity in a way that suits them. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is getting some movement into your day.
While many of us know that exercising is important for our physical and mental health, that doesn’t change the fact that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week.
Why? Victorian women have said that a big part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start. Not to mention, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think – how unfair is that? Sports, gyms and moving your body are for everybody (literally, every body).
Because it’s perfectly normal to get sweaty and messy when you’re having fun and getting active. Because moving and making time for your health doesn’t need to be a chore. Because there are so many options, and we’re on a mission to help you find something that feels right for you.
Glenroy Football Club and AFL Australia are supporters of This Girl Can - Victoria and we encourage any young girl or women to give the sport a go. Contact the club for more information on how we can support you in becoming a player.
