This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day, a national observance celebrating the extraordinary achievements of women and girls in sports. This event aims to empower females to get moving, embrace physical activity and push past their limits.
This is the second year SVC has hosted an event, at which the girls also got lunch and a t-shirt.
