Our company is currently dedicated to assisting schools realize just exactly what motivates girls to get involved, allowing instructor to work alongside girls – through consultation and leadership – to really make the necessary modifications with their PE, sport and activity provision that is physical. In Scotland we partner with Sport Scotland to make this happen through Fit for women, whilst in other countries we use Youth Sport Trust Girls Active.

The honor winning Girls Active is made in the straight straight back of the 12 month action scientific study carried out by the Youth Sport Trust, and it is sustained by Women in Sport. We currently deliver Girls Active to guide large number of girls across England and Northern Ireland, funded in England by Sport England (with positioning to the woman Can) and wide range of neighborhood lovers, plus in Northern Ireland by Sport NI.

Research shows that:

  • By age 7 girls happen to be less active than guys and also this disparity widens because they move from childhood into adolescence
  • Secondary-age girls are more inclined to experience barriers to involvement than men
  • The drop-off that is biggest does occur throughout the change from main to additional college, with interruption to friendship teams and decreasing human body self- self- self- confidence affecting girls’ participation in PE and sport.

So that you can deal with this alarming truth, in 2013 we developed Girls Active because of 20 secondary schools to our work by way of a 12-month pilot geared towards tackling the negative attitudes that girls have towards their human body image, enhance their mindset towards PE, sport and physical working out, and also to make use of schools in order to make sport more highly relevant to girls' everyday lives.
