Local triathlete Angharad Llewellyn has offered to run the ‘Power to the Girls’ seminar again in November. This is especially for Canberra CC, Vikings CC and CORC junior girls and other junior female athletes in the Canberra area.
This session will be tailored for our 14-19yr old girls involved in cycling and triathlon. Angharad has kindly offered to organise this on basis of some excellent feedback that was given by one of our junior girls who attended the seminar in July.
This session is being provided at no cost to Canberra CC, Vikings CC and CORC junior girls and other junior female athletes in the Canberra area.
Additional information about the session and presenters can be found on the SportsCare Physio Website.
To manage our COVID record-keeping and participation reporting all participants (including parents and guardians) are required to register here on EntryBoss.
Female athletes may not always completely understand all there is to know about the different factors to consider for sport and exercise. The female body is unique, and while training for females is not drastically different to that which is designed for male athletes, there are some factors and adjustments that can assist female athletes in their performance and health. Canberra local, AG World Champion Triathlete, and SportsCare and Physiotherapy client, Angharad Llewellyn, is leading an information session for female athletes with SportsCare Physiotherapist Georgia Clayden. After noticing a lack of public information available for girls and women training, Angharad and Georgia are excited to invite other female athletes to join them and learn more about how to get the most out of their bodies. The session will provide helpful information for female athletes to better manage their nutritional needs, physiotherapy, injury prevention, and strength and conditioning while training.
“I want to provide young female athletes with the knowledge that I wish I had at the same age. We lose many talented athletes in their younger years, often due to injuries or being burnt out. Not all senior athletes have come from a high-performance pathway and I want to give all athletes the opportunity to be better and increase their longevity in their sport.” – Angharad Llewellyn
Georgia and Advanced Sports Dietician Alicia Edge will be presenting on the day, followed by a Q&A panel discussion with Georgia (netball and AFL), Angharad (triathlon) and other local elite athletes Gracie Elvin (cycling), and Keely Small (athletics).

Remember: 'I forgot to register' or late registration are excellent reasons to bring extra coffee money. If this applies to you make sure you come up with a good excuse for why you shouldn't shout the bunch ;)
