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.
