Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

Active Women and Girls

Our vision is that every resident of the Glenelg Shire can participate in sport and active recreation regardless of their personal circumstances or attributes. Council is committed to actively pursuing opportunities to increase women’s and girls’ access and participation in a diverse range of sports, in both on and off the field roles.

This Girl Can

This Girl Can knows through lots of research that women worry about being judged when they exercise, and often are too embarrassed or intimidated to exercise in public.
This Girl Can – Victoria is about giving it a go and getting active; no matter how well you do it, how you look, or how sweaty you get.
Whether it’s a walk in the park, a gym sesh, a killer run, or gathering a few gal pals for a game of netball, there are so many ways to get active.

Want to make your sport club or facility more inclusive for women? Download This Girl Can Victoria’s free, practical guide where you’ll find advice, suggestions and handy tips to help you create new activities or programs especially for women. Whether they’re coming back to exercise after a break, or joining in for the first time, we’ll give you the right tools to make a difference.

Change our Game

The Change Our Game Women in Sport and Recreation Communication and Marketing Guidelines have been developed in conjunction with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) to assist community sport and recreation organisations looking to develop inclusive communication and marketing practices.

Effective marketing can play a key role helping organisations increase membership, improve culture, attract commercial support and contribute to building stronger and healthier local communities.
