Folder No: F2004/07086
As a member of Sport NSW, Randwick Council has been presented with an opportunity to support the local Girls Get Active event to be held in June 2017. The event is offered exclusively to Sport NSW Council members as part of the Stronger Sporting Communities program.
The Girls Get Active event is organised for local female high school students. Invitations are distributed to a number of high schools in the local area to attend the event at no cost. The aim is to encourage young females to participate in sports especially into their late teens.
The day involves a panel discussion involving champion female athletes followed by an active session with 6-8 different sports stations. The aim is for participants to try a variety of sports in a fun and safe environment. Information on female pathways available in the local region is provided for each sport to encourage female involvement in sport.
Sport NSW coordinates the event, invitations, sports, media and guest speakers. The host Council usually assists with a venue, facilities and funding assistance. The local event is proposed for the 7 or 8 June 2017. UNSW has offered the use of their facilities to cater for 120 female high school students.
