Past & Present


Thank you for organising another great sporting event for mothers and daughters. My daughters, 4 and 6, and I had a great time learning and having fun. I wanted to let you know that your effort made an impact to me and my family. I could see my girls gaining conDdence in trying something new and moving their bodies in new ways, in their social skills, and in learning about a new sport. And thank you for sharing photos from the day. Lovely to see these action shots. Thanks to all who organised and volunteered. And a big thank you for acknowledging and empowering girls and women in sports.
