Girls in Year 8 to10 can now get fit and have fun with the new program funded by the Department of Sports and Recreation: YMCA active girls .This program is free and is run by girls for girls. There are activities that include boot camp, body balance and many others. Many High Schools around Perth have signed up for this program, however if you find your high school is not hosting this program then it is a good idea to contact YMCA Active Girls and enrol your school into the program.
YMCA have created a special membership website where girls record their activity on their personal page. Each activity is allocated a certain amount of points, and the more points you collect the greater you chance of being rewarded some awesome prizes.
Programs run for an hour and are LOADS of fun. Body balance includes yoga, pilates and a bit of Tai Chi. Near the end of the session, a bit of meditation relaxes the body from all the hard work it had done earlier. The boot camp session are filled with activies such as push ups, step ups, lunges and much more. It's hard work, but it's all worth it at the end. Some days you are rewarded with Boost Vouchers - which is a real treat.
