This Girl Can - Victoria
This Girl Can - Victoria celebrates women who are giving it a go and getting active no matter how well they do it, how they look or how sweaty they get.
Tall, short, curvy, petite; no matter your physique, This Girl Can - Victoria thinks if you're out there getting active, you're awesome.
More than three in five Australian women aren't active enough to enjoy the health benefits. This Girl Can - Victoria features everyday Victorian women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and abilities to show that you can get out there and get active too.
We want all women & girls to get out there and share their story getting active:
Gippy Girls Can
Through funding received from the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone, GippSport will be delivering a range of sport & recreation opportunities for women & girls.
Initial launch activities include:
- Rock Up Netball - a social, fun, and non traditional way to play netball with Netball Victoria
- Stretch & flex - Mum's & bub's gymnastics with Energetic Gymnastics Club
- Soccer mums - a social fun format of soccer with Monash Soccer Club
- Coasting Stand Up Paddleboarding... in Latrobe Leisure indoor pools!
GippSport will be seeking to work with the community to increase opportunities for women and girls to participate in a range of sports and active recreation options throughout the campaign.
We are encouraging women & girls from across Gippsland, but particularly from the Latrobe Valley to celebrate getting active through our social channels:
- is a calendar of activities that women & girls can get involved in for low or no cost.
The campaign is not about skill, level, shape or size, it's about getting out there and having a go. Join a global movement of women supporting women to get active with This Girl Can - Victoria and Gippy Girls Can.
The Latrobe Valley amplification is the only regional amplification of this campaign across the state.
Whilst initially Latrobe City focused, from July 1 2018 the Gippy Girls Can campaign will be across the whole Gippsland region in partnership with VicHealth.
