Active Women and Girls Strategy – Workshop

A workshop exploring ways to increase women and girls participation in sport and active recreation

Council, in partnership with Sport and Recreation Victoria, is developing an Active Women and Girls strategy.  The development of this strategy is important as females are less likely than males to be physically active. Within the Hepburn Shire, 32.3% of females are meeting the physical activity guidelines compared with 50.7% of males (VicHealth, 2015). This strategy will provide a short, medium and long term action plan to increase women and girls participation in sport and active recreation within the Hepburn Shire.

We invite you to come and share ideas on increasing participation and strategies to address barriers to women and girls being physically active in the local Hepburn Shire community.  Attendees will hear about the current participation rates of women and girls in sport and active recreation within the Hepburn Shire.

Attendees will have the opportunity to identify:

  • Barriers that may prevent women and girls from participating in sport and active recreation in Hepburn Shire
  • Current activities, programs and initiatives within the Hepburn Shire that encourage women and girls participation in sport and active recreation
  • Initiatives that could enable more women and girls to participate in sport and active recreation.
