This Girl Can 2018
On April 18th 2018 Melton Sport & Health Alliance along with Active Rutland held a 'This Girl Can' event. Fifty girls from across four different schools were invited to the Active Rutland Hub to try out three different physical activities from a choice of gymnastics, dodgeball, kickboxing, football, zumba, and street dance. There were also fun lunchtime activities including hula hoop and skipping competitions, glitter face painting, a photo booth, and a pledge board.
The focus of the day was about improving the girls' confidence and self-esteem, in order to encourage them to take up physical activity. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive and many of the girls have since joined the sessions that they tried out on the day.
