Girls Day Out is an annual one-day event for girls aged 6-16 years to try new sports, meet professional female athletes, learn new skills and be inspired. It’s all about giving girls a go at sports they might not have tried or want to learn more about. We want to encourage healthy bodies, healthy minds – and maybe even inspire our next generation of female superstars.
Our 45 minute, mini-clinics are small and focused, giving the young girls a high-energy, fun taste of sports offered locally in the Hunter and played by incredible female athletes at the highest levels. The mini-clinics are run by professional sportswomen, top female athletes and coaching staff from the sporting codes. The athletes & staff running the clinics spend time with the girls teaching them the skills of the sport and talking about what it’s like to be a top-level sportswoman.
The young girls are given a chance to see these extraordinary athletes are normal humans, who have achieved their goals through hard work and determination. It teaches our young ones that their dreams are possible and achievable - whether that’s to play professional sport or to be anything they wish to be, because they are face to face with women who have made it happen!
