Twelve ‘Go Gold’

Posted on September 18, 2019


Twelve of our top sportswomen joined forces with 400 other sporty females from across the country at the annual ‘Girls Go Gold Conference’ at the University of Bath on Thursday 12 September 2019.

Pam Cookey, ex-England Netball captain, commonwealth medallist and successful engineer opened the conference with a speech about the importance of sport on wellbeing and how the skills and attributes learned through participation in physical activity can be of huge benefit both in school and in our working lives.

Other highlights included a netball training session run by Team Bath players, a visit to the Sports Science labs and gaining hands on experience of some key fitness tests and its associated data. The girls absolutely loved their final practical session on the trampolines – high energy and lots of hilarity!
