This Girl Can
This Girl Can Week is a dedicated time when physical activity businesses – clubs, gyms, facilities and organisations – can offer fun, beginner-friendly, and come-and-try events for women in their area, either for free or at very low cost.
About This Girl Can
This Girl Can – Victoria advocates for all women – cis, trans, non-binary, and gender diverse – to get active in welcoming and supportive environments.
Each year the City of Ballarat runs a This Girl Can campaign for Ballarat women and girls. The campaign includes a series of programs, events and activations over a week in March.
This year, the City of Ballarat is working with Sports Central to bring This Girl Can activities to Ballarat. The campaign will include a series of programs delivered by a range of local organisations from 22 to 28 March 2021.
