VicHealth’s This Girl Can – Victoria campaign is all about women getting out and getting active regardless of age, level of ability, background, body shape and size. The inaugural This Girl Can – Victoria Week runs from 18 – 24 March 2019.
The Kardinia Park Precinct is a central hub for physical activity in Geelong, hosting a vibrant mix of sporting clubs and organisations. The Kardinia Park Stadium Trust, together with our precinct partners, applaud VicHealth and This Girl Can – Victoria in their mission to help women find an activity that is enjoyable and feels right for them.
Whether its organised sports, umpiring, use of the Kardinia Park outdoor exercise station and walking paths, dance lessons or frisbee with the dog – the options are endless. The Trust shares a vision of ingrained inclusion and equality in sport, particularly women and people of all abilities.
The This Girl Can – Victoria program is driving change at grass roots level for women and sporting organisations in our community.
