  • 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.”

#NETBALLMoJo VIDEO - Fuelling up during your menstrual cycle with

12:00 Eating & Training on your Period

Eating & Training on your Period - The Female Athlete Traid - supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme

Read more about diet, training and periods in MoJoManauls - BUY HERE

The advice we offer in the Feeling Good zone – bone health, healthy food, rehydration, the menstrual cycle and smart training – is there to help you train well and support you being a young woman as well as an athlete. We want you to be on top form and avoid habits which can lead to lack of energy, tiredness, disrupted periods - and even fragile bones. Any combination of disordered eating, menstrual problems and bone health in female athletes (plus any associated energy defi cit/lowered performance) is often described as the ‘Female Athlete Triad’.

Food and water to fuel your exercise - Eating the right foods at the right times will help avoid ‘Female Athlete Triad’ – other signs to look out for are: feeling overly tired from excessive training, over exercising or decreasing the amount of food you eat. Abnormal eating habits (restricting foods, skipping meals, eating disorders) can also result F.A.T. symptoms – causing low energy levels. These can disrupt your period and increase risk of injury. So, eat and drink smart to train smart!

Keep track of your menstrual cycle - By using a period tracker app (or tracking the start and end dates of you period in a diary or calendar) you will be able to work out your menstrual pattern. Irregular or multiple missed periods can impact bone health by disrupting oestrogen levels. If you have missed periods or your periods haven’t started by the time you are 15 OR if you began breast development more than three years ago and haven’t started your periods, it’s worth arranging a check-up just to make sure everything is OK.

Bone growth – your bones are growing fast in the early teens so, again a healthy diet that includes calcium (see page 32), sensible training and period tracking are alessential to keep them strong.

Slump - Not your average Sports Movie -

Join us in exploring what “making it” actually looks like in the sports world and the sacrifices that are made, both on and off the field. With women in top creative roles, we invite you to be a part of the production process as we make this film with a dream cast & crew.

When Sidney, an overweight tomboy, finds herself helping out the underrated baseball player with his swing, rumours and jealousy test their budding friendship. Tensions rise when Sidney’s older sister, Mackenzie, returns to town withholding a secret that has the ability to damage her own precious image. With Sidney suddenly being the talk of the locker room, and an unexpected visit from the sisters' infamous retired pro-athlete father, what lengths will one family go to stay on top?

#NETBALL - nutrition with @madibrowne__ @NetballWorldCup #THISISNETBALL with NETBALLMoJo

Diet for netball - Madison Browne, netball co-Captain #1 Pilates Instructor | Teacher | Student | Health + Wellbeing Hustler - talks about nutrition before a top level performance - Supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme

Getting ready for a match? It’s often the last 15 mins that winners win . . . or is it when losers lose? Sometimes you just run out of energy in those closing minutes. Could it be the fuel you’re using? Even before you start playing big competitions it’s worth getting the right fuel for a match or tournament.

Before – Avoid eating big meals within 2 hours of exercise. For an effective pre-game snack, try fruit, low fi bre carbs or cereal bars.

During – between quarters, on the subs bench or at half time, top up with a couple of Jelly Babies for fast releasing energy.

After – your body will be crying out for carbs, protein and fl uids so plan to eat something within 30 mins. Sometimes you feel less hungry then, so a yogurt, glass of semiskimmed milk or a sandwich is perfect. You can take it as soon as you come off the pitch, perhaps with a banana. A more structured, yet light, refuel might be an omelette with juice or water.

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

15:00 find your MoJo post pregnancy

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch; 
my mummyfitness@gmail.com All mummies are welcome.

LOOP Social Table Tennis programme supports #HERMoJo - more women more ACTIVE!

At LOOP, we believe table tennis is ideally suited to cafés, bars and pubs, and similar venues.  The game is as sociable or competitive as the players want it to be and a single table can be enjoyed by up to 20 people at any one time.

There are lots of ping pong pubs and cafés already popping up all over the place.  

♦ Table Tennis is a vital part of pub and café culture and leads a return of pub games

♦ Pub table tennis tables are focal points where friends and strangers meet, laugh and play

♦ New forms of social leagues, ladders and cups thrive across every village, town and city

We’re already working with a number of independent bars, pub chains and breweries to build a thriving pub LOOP culture, where table tennis leads the way.

Want to find out more?  Click here to email LOOP table tennis!

#NETBALLMoJo VIDEO - The Knee PROGRAMME with .@TeamAntcliff, .@AussieDiamonds & NETBALLMoJo - @Vitality_UK .@NetballWorldCup #THISISNETBALL

13:00 - The AUS Knee Programme meets HerMoJo!

13:00

WSNet launches NETBALLMoJo in the lead up to the Vitality Netball World Cup - with support from Netball Australia

As we approach the Vitality Netball World Cup the Women's Sports Network prepares to launch NETBALLMoJo - the next in this empowering series of manuals designed to help teenage girls overcome some of the many issues they face as they engage in competitive sport. Covering a range of sports they investigate issues such as; body image, diet, breast health, fit or thin, social media, training with menstruation, coach attitude etc. All of which can often impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport.

Much of the NETBALLMoJo covers strength and agility from an injury prevention point of view and is hugely useful for young netballers to get off ‘on the right foot’!

Netball Australia developed the KNEE Programme which aims to reduce all lower body injuries across all levels of netball. Hear from Netball Australia's Head Physiotherapist Alanna Antcliff, Australian Diamonds head coach Lisa Alexander and Australian Diamonds shooter Erin Bell.

WSNet has, with the agreement of Netball Australia, drawn heavily on the Knee Programme and will be launching NETBALLMoJo – initially in English on 1st July in time for the World Cup on Liverpool 12-21 July. MORE INFO https://www.nwc2019.co.uk/

Emma Ross and Richard Burden of the EIS Physiology team speak about the work they are doing around female athlete health to encourage athletes, coaches and support staff to open up the conversation and consider female physiology and psychology in training, recovery, nutrition and the coaching environment, in order to improve the health and performance outcomes for female athletes.

Read more about Menstruation & training - extract from MoJoManuals - helping teen girls enjoy competitive sport by overcoming some of the many issues they face!

Work around your period - when you are training regularly be aware that exercise is good but the type and timing are important. You might want to track your cycle on a smart phone APP. This can help you plan training/diet and have a better understanding of what’s happening.

High oestrogen - rising levels of the hormone oestrogen in the first half of your cycle help energise you and can help you feel ready to train hard. As oestrogen levels increase, some experts suggest that this is good time to do strength and resistance training. Eating carbohydrates
and proteins are particularly important as these provide energy and help with recovery.

Second half of your cycle - as the hormone progesterone kicks in, and then towards the end of your period, levels of both progesterone and oestrogen fall. You might begin to feel a little sluggish. Some experts say this is the time to focus more on endurance and reduce the intensity of your training. Your body is thought to use fats more at this time to provide energy, so try and get some good healthy fats into your diet.
