BoroGirls supports #WSW2017 19-25th June - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE
- Tees Valley Sport’s aim is to inject new life into the This Girl Can campaign by ACTIV8ing a Coach, This is a fun video which shows you hpw easy and satificying it can be by getting into coaching #NETBALL as volunteers - and help to grow your community with ACTIV8aFriend.
- “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into coaching no matter what their size.
- Tees Valley Sport worked closely with groups of women who have suffered from domestic violence or just low confidence to prove that anyone can find an activity they enjoy. The video shows women from across Teesside exercising in ways that feel comfortable for them.
- Netball coach Faye Summerhill appears at the beginning of the video. She said: “We got involved particularly because of the bad press the area is getting at the moment. “I don’t think there’s enough about the good stuff going on, it’s all negative. “The more women that get into sport, the more positive it will be for the area.”
