Carly 'Smiley' Formosa only recently joined her local women's inaugural football team. She has been described by fellow teammate Lana Van Berlo as "Not only a supportive and encouraging teammate who plays a tough game giving it her all very week on the field but off field she is kind, caring and thoughtful . She goes straight from our football to watch her sister play local netball and is always giving of her time to the younger girls within our club who are there with their mums at training and game day."
Carly was nominated for the Young Female Athlete Season Pack for Spring 2017 and I'm excited to share with you a quick little Q&A I did with this caring young athlete.
What do you do to be active?
During winter I play football and netball. I train for footy twice a week and play once a week. For netball I train twice a week as well and play once a week and I also fit in a gym sessions whenever I can.
For gym I start off with doing intervals on the treadmill, then move on to some core work and leg work, and then end with some weights.
