Active Whittlesea

Communities that are physically active are more likely to be healthier communities.

Active Whittlesea Strategy

Active Whittlesea 2019-2028 will guide the planning and promotion of sport, leisure and recreation programs, services and facilities within the City of Whittlesea over the next 10 years.

Diversity is one of our greatest strengths, yet many groups (e.g. migrants, women and girls, people with a disability) experience significant barriers to participation — such as cost, transport and awareness.

This strategy aims to address these barriers to get more people active more often.

This Girl Can Victoria

This Girl Can – Victoria is an empowering campaign from VicHealth, based on Sport England’s highly successful This Girl Can campaign.

This Girl Can Victoria week is coming to the City of Whittlesea between 18-24 March and there are plenty of opportunities for you to get active.

We have engaged with several state sporting associations to bring you exciting female only programs:

Netball Victoria – Rock Up Netball 

Football Victoria – Soccermums 

Ultimate Victoria – Girls Love Ultimate 

Cricket Victoria

Whittlesea Girls Can

Inspired by the This Girl Can - Victoria movement five local women from different walks of life have spoken out in a video, Whittlesea Girls Can, encouraging women to feel empowered to be physically active.

See the video on the side of this page and share how you get active by using #whittleseagirlscan on social media.
