Women in Sport
You may have noticed that Physis mostly consists of ladies in management. This is by no means a reflection on the equal opportunities we offer all of our staff members (which we do of course!), but a reflection on the quality of ladies who have worked through the ranks.
It is with this caring and progressive management style in mind that Physis has looked to find ways to uplift and encourage the local community - cue the Valkyries.
The Valkyries are believed to be the first and only all-female American football team in Wales and has been a work in progress since February 2016.
They compete in BAFA (British American Football) run tournaments such as Sapphire and Diamond series which are located all around the South England/ midlands and have seen some of their players selected for the GB team two years in a row!
"It's a preconception that you have to be a certain type of sports player to get involved with American Football."
- Coach Simon Browning of Whitchurch
Why We Support Them:
The Valkyries offer an inclusive environment where different shapes, sizes, skills and experience can come together to progress themselves and American Football, for women in Wales and beyond.
It is for these reasons that the Physis team is extremely proud to align ourselves with a group that speak so closely to our hearts.
Show them your support. Purchase some of the Merchandise on offer and see the proceeds go to The Valkyries.
