Well­ness pro­grams for girls

Weekend Courier - - Street Watch -

YMCAs Aus­tralia-wide have teamed up with the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s Girls Make Your Move cam­paign to give girls aged 12 to 19 years the chance to take ad­van­tage of a 30-day free ac­cess pass to par­tic­i­pat­ing YMCA cen­tres and well­ness pro­grams.

Girls Make Your Move is about in­spir­ing girls to par­tic­i­pate in reg­u­lar phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity to stay fit and healthy for life.

With stud­ies show­ing nine out of 10 girls are not ac­tive enough, this move aims to re­verse the trend.

Warnbro Com­mu­nity Y have pro­grams for girls aged 12 to 19.

Gen­eral man­ager metro Brooke Draper said 12- to 14-yearold girls could get free par­tic­i­pa­tion in METAFIT classes on Tues­days and Thurs­days at 4.30pm.
