#TeamGirls isn't a slogan. It's a movement. It's a way of existing in the world. It's having each other's backs. It's authenticity and loyalty. It's girls standing united as a team on and off the court. On and off the field. In and out of the classroom. Online and offline. #TeamGirls is knowing that together, we are stronger. You better believe it. Be a #TeamGirl!"
Together with Netball Australia and ReachOut and a range of industry experts and ambassadors, Suncorp launched #TeamGirls to promote and foster girls’ confidence through sports participation. Our Suncorp Australian Youth and Confidence 2017 Research Report revealed that the key to building confidence in young Australian girls is having supportive family and friends and participating in sport; however as they get older, they are playing less and less.
With the support of our partners and ambassadors, we created Suncorp #TeamGirls, a program encouraging girls to participate in sports and build confidence together, peer-to-peer, girls supporting girls, just like on a netball court. To achieve this, we need the support of their parents and families to help nurture our girls to become confident women.
Start playing. Keep playing.
Well everyone, look who's back! It's us! We are back, here at the AIS.
Now, last year we were here trying desperately to join the Australian netball team, but umm...we didn't have what it...takes.
It's okay, Sarah. We've left it in the past because we've done some soul searching, and you know what? We realise that our strengths lie as leaders, and not players.
Yes, it does, and thanks to Suncorp's #TeamGirls program, we're back, and we're back as coaches!
That's right! We are about to give those Aussie Diamonds a training session they will never forget.
What's actually on your clipboard? I've got nothing. You? Me either.
Alright, now where do we go? How many people in the team?
Oooh! These are perfect. Could we just charge these back to Lisa Alexander please? She's the former coach.
Let's do it. Team Girls!
Okay, okay, we've had enough of that, haven't we?
Girls, what does this stand for?
Wrong. Incorrect. We thought you would know. It stands for Coach.
I'm Sarah. Can still do the Stussy 'S'. I am Lise, with an 'e'. It's French for 'success'.
Who wants some chips? Incorrect! We don't eat chips. No, we don't.
Be in a relationship with Gilbert. All of you, okay? It's like the Bachelor, but there's no Badger, it's Gilbert.
Think quickly Tegan. Oop, could be quicker.
Get your body warm, let's go!
♪ Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? Are you never, never gonna leave? ♪
That's it! She's got it. Ooh she's pretty good.
Sprint! Round us out. Yes!
Alright girls, it's break time. Right. Let's fuel those bodies.
Carrots for you. Caitlin, celery stick. Celery stick.
This is our food, not yours. In our coaches mugs, because that's who we are today.
The pièce de résistance. We have collected a seabass from the bottom of the ocean, and that's for your protein.
Now Tegan, I can't stress how important it is for you to trust your team. And you can't trust your team unless you trust your coach.
So, I want you to gently fall back into my arms and I will catch you. Okay, off we go.
You want a chip? Yes, I do actually. Tegan! No, I didn't say 'go'. You've got to follow instructions, we're part of a team.
She didn't trust you!
Too much power. That was on purpose, wasn't it? It was very close.
Girls, try that.
Look at what we've created. Confidence. Cohesion.
Okay, I know who's going to get a gold star from me. You? Yep!
Jo, well done. Blue star for you.
You've earnt yourself a green star.
I think these girls are going to miss us. You're going to miss us aren't you girls?
I think they mean 'yes'.
I'd like to think we've all become friends.
It's all #TeamGirls here.
We didn't buy these for for nothing. No we did not.
