#BecauseSheCan

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 we are providing the women of RMIT free opportunities throughout the semester to do just that.

Learn more about the program at the official page here.
