Womensport NSW aims to encourage and develop a healthy, active lifestyle by giving school girls in metropolitan and regional NSW the opportunity to take part in ‘Girls Get Active’ Events. An integral part of these days provides the girls with the unique opportunity to meet inspiring female athletes- role models they would not normally encounter regularly.
