This Girl Can in Your School

A considerable amount of research has shown that girls become less active than their male peers. This not only affects their physical health but also their emotional wellbeing. But why are girls less engaged in physical activities?


This awareness session will explore the current statistics around girls participation and will give you an insight of the barriers that girls face when being active. The session highlights some of the different things that school settings can be demonstrating to help break down these barriers and encourage girls to stay and/or become more active.


This awareness session is well suited for individuals who would like to raise the profile of physical activity for girls and young females.
