Last week was the FA's #GirlsFootballWeek and we took the opportunity to run a range of activities, working closely with the University of Warwick Women's Football Club, to support women in football.
Take a look at what we got up to...
Warwick Girls Can celebrates the active lives of women on campus: the woman who cycles to work to clear her mind, the woman who uses exercise to benefit her health, the woman whoruns to escape and explore.
The Warwick Girls Can week of the 20 - 24 November will host a variety of free activities for women to join in with, such as Boxing, Dancing and Yoga, as well as female only free gym times. Warwick Sport aims to offer a wide variety of activities to support female participation in sport such as female only swim, football programmes for various age groups, as well as training and mentoring support for careers in sport.

Our Club Development Officer Matt has a great message to clubs for World Mental Health Day.
Remember Mental Health is important to everyone and the University is committed to providing an environment in which to work and study which supports the wellbeing of all staff and students. So even if you’re not be part of a sports club it’s worth thinking about how this might be relevant to you, whether it’s in your workplace, department, social circles, residences or elsewhere.
On Monday 9 October, SU Sports Officer Ellie Martin officially opened the new Claycroft Activity Zone - an outdoor sports facility that features exercise and climbing equipment, trampolines, swings and more. Over the summer we worked on both this and a new water-based hockey pitch on Westwood campus, helping to make Warwick Sport's vision for Warwick as the most physically active campus community in the UK by 2020 a reality.
These two projects go hand in hand with our ongoing work to create a new Sport and Wellness Hub, which will serve as the main centre for sporting activity on campus.
From Tuesday 10th October and Friday 13th October Coventry University Sports Therapy students will be providing a brand new affordable therapy service to our sports teams. Tuesday will be a Triage clinic and Friday Massage. Natasha, our new Physiotherapist responsible for developing our new brand new Warwick Sport Physiotherapy Clinic, says:
"This is an amazing addition to the therapy service we are building on campus providing an affordable alternative for our Warwick students, whilst providing a great experience for students at both universities."
