This Girl Can
Nillumbik Shire Council is supporting This Girl Can week, held from 12 to 25 September. This Girl Can week is a VicHealth initiative championing women to take fitness into their own hands.
Nillumbik’s sporting and recreation clubs, three leisure centres and the golf course are throwing themselves behind This Girl Can week and encouraging more women to give physical activity a go.
Women of all ages can have a try of different sports and activities across the Shire either for free or heavily discounted.
As part of This Girl Can week, Council provides grants to support sporting clubs to deliver a participation opportunity for local women and/or girls.
Clubs and facilities
As part of Council's commitment to gender equity, we have identified sporting clubs and activities that not only support female participation but provide female friendly facilities.
Council will continue to advocate to all levels of government for funding to improve the standard of community sporting infrastructure to support and enhance female participation in active and passive recreation.
The following clubs and facilities are recognised as committed to the ongoing support of This Girl Can:
