Girls Sport Victoria is one of the largest independent girls’ schools sporting Associations in Victoria. Within GSV member schools nearly 15,000 girls from years seven to twelve have the opportunity to be involved in more than 20 sports in weekly competitions, carnivals, tournaments and events.
GSV encourages all girls to participate in school sport, whether it be trying a new sport in a non-competitive environment or representing their school in GSV interschool sport and carnivals. GSV also offers a number of opportunities for girls wishing to compete at an elite level.
School sport enriches girls’ school lives. Being part of a school sporting team helps them feel valued by and connected to their school community. Girls who play sport not only benefit from the physical activity of training and playing sport, they develop friendships with their team mates, learn about the highs and lows of life, but importantly, maintain a healthy balance between study and co-curricular activities which ultimately assists them to perform well academically.
Girls who enjoy sport in their teenage years are more likely to develop a positive attitude to women’s health and a lifelong love for physical activity and sport.
