VIDEO: University of Bath sports stars inspires next generation at This Girl Can event on International Women’s Day
Three sporting role models who train and compete at the University of Bath helped to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 when they took part in an event inspiring schoolgirls across Bath & North East Somerset.
Forty sporty children aged five and six attended the fun This Girl Can event at the Sports Training Village, which was hosted by Team Bath Tribe in association with the Bath & North East Somerset School Sport Partnership.
As well as try their hand at netball and trampolining, the girls also got to meet Team Bath Netball shooter Kim Commane, British Skeleton athlete Amelia Coltman and Team Bath Synchro Club international Ilaria Brandimarte, and find out more about their sporting careers.
“It was lovely to meet these young ladies and hopefully we were able to inspire them,” said Kim.
Amelia added: “We spoke to the girls about what elite sport is like and they were so engaged in what we had to say. They asked so many questions and it was great to be able to share our insight with the next generation.”
Team Bath Tribe runs hugely-popular netball coaching sessions every week, among many other sports, and also organises and hosts inspirational school visits. Click here to find out more.
