The Program Experience
Stephanie Elias 2017 Medleys participant:
The Medleys program was such an amazing experience for myself. Coming from a Lebanese background I felt really privileged to be able to share my cultural and football values with girls from all over Australia who each have different cultures.
It felt so special to be apart of the first ever Medleys team as we were able to set team values and I couldn't have asked for a better first team! We learnt many things from nutrition, ball skills, teamwork, being positive role models and coming together as one. The program has helped me embrace my ethnicity and my team mates cultures and personalities which brought us all together.
