"Hume City Council recently engaged Australian Womensport and Recreation Association [now Women Sport Australia] to provide a Women In Sport Leaders Course as part of the VicHealth funded Active Craigieburn Project. 28 Women from all backgrounds and all ages participated in the One day Course covering Personal Leadership styles, mentoring, working with the media, communication strategies and conflict resolution. The course also provided a wonderful opportunity for sharing experiences and networking with women from different sporting backgrounds, coaches, administrators, players, state sporting associations and local government.

The feedback we received from participants was testament to the value they received form their participation in the course, I would encourage all LGA's to consider offering this one day course to the sporting women in their community."
