Women aged 18 to 24 can register from today for Council’s new Active Women (18-24 years) program.

Women aged 18 to 24 can register from today to take part in low-cost activities such as group fitness, Pilates, boxing and kayaking, to be offered by Council next year.

Registration for Council’s new Active Women (18-24 years) program is open until January 21.

Project Officer Edwina Griffin said spaces in each activity were limited so it was important to act quickly.

Participants can register to take part in up to three of the following activities:

  • Boxing/Self-defence.
  • Gym (weights and cardio).
  • Kayaking.
  • Martial arts/Self-defence.
  • Outdoor group fitness.
  • Pilates.
  • Stand-up paddle boarding.
  • Yoga.

The activities were chosen, said Ms Griffin, in consultation with 18-to-24-year-old women surveyed earlier this year.

Participation in each activity costs $5 per person, per session.

To run for 12 weeks, the program aims to assist young women to stay active.

“The 2016/17 Ausplay survey showed only 36% of women aged 18 to 24 are meeting the physical activity guidelines for their age group,” Ms Griffin said.

“Young women told us the activities they were keen to take part in, if offered at low-cost. The Active Women (18-24 years) program delivers those activities.

“It’s also a great opportunity for young women to connect with other like-minded women in their age group,” Ms Griffin said.

The Queensland Government provided Noosa Council with a $10,040 grant toward the Get Out, Get Active program to get women and girls active for life. Council will contribute an additional $4950 to the program.
