The event will be held in the Cardinia Life stadium from 9-11:30am and will include clinics conducted by local sporting clubs and include; AFL, soccer, gymnastics, floorball, netball, and more. Along with the activities you will also hear from a panel of participants in sport including; local female athletes, female administrators, coaches and referees / umpires. Who will discuss relevant items to local female sport from the perspectives of those involved and the challenges and the positives of being active and connected to sport.
