Because She Can
Female-friendly ways for students and staff to get active!
A major part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is the fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start. At RMIT we want to get women moving in a safe, inclusive and fun way.
As part of our Social Sport Program open to both staff and students, we are providing the women of RMIT free opportunities throughout the semester to do just that. No matter your skill level or experience, we’re encouraging you to give it a go #becauseshecan.
Inspired by the #ThisGirlCan - Victoria campaign, with so many different options available, we want the women of RMIT to embrace physical activity in a way that suits them.
"Honestly, I couldn't imagine my Uni life without the Redbacks. I've made 20 new best friends, just from RMIT Sport."
Meet Sarah McCabe, RMIT University Redbacks Netball player and team manager.
“I decided to throw myself into doing new things and embrace all opportunities that came my way. Even though I had followed soccer for years, I had never played so I joined RMIT Football Club. The girls were super welcoming and joining the club was one of the best things I had ever done.”
Georgia Rajic has been kicking goals on and off the sports field since graduating from RMIT with a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) (Applied).
