CHARLIE’S TALES BOOK SESSION
Charlie’s Tales: Peggy and the Fantastic Football aims to teach girls about how amazing their bodies are and what they can achieve. This focus on functionality is a key element of developing a positive body image. Additionally the book and resources aim to encourage girls to get involved in sports, to have fun and to play with confidence.
Parents will be invited to attend a session whilst their daughters are undertaking the book session. Parents will also be provided a body confidence resource to take home. Key speaker Breeanna Brock, Head of Women’s Football, Brisbane Lions will deliver the session and on how AFL and sport can play a significant role in the physical and mental health development of young girls. Hastings Deering will also speak on why they're so passionate about AFLW and proud to support and empower future women in their workforce.

Girls will be broken up into groups to undertake advanced skills and drills and team-building exercises which will be run by the Brisbane Lions AFLW players.
FOOD & DRINKS
At the completion of the Train Like a Lion Session, parents and participants will be invited to join us for a Sausage Sizzle.
Pretty is often used in a superficial context with regards to female appearance. We want to go beyond the superficial and reclaim the power of pretty by using it to describe the true value of women and girls.
