The Youth Sport Trust is celebrating Women's Sport Week (1-7 June) by inviting schools to get involved in the innovative Girls Active programme.
Together with the launch of the Girls Active video, showcasing the principles of the programme, the Youth Sport Trust is seeking to identify 90 schools from 10 predefined county areas that will be supported to deliver Girls Active.
Run in partnership with Women in Sport and funded by Sport England National Lottery Funding, the programme offers a simple and flexible framework to help teachers and girls work together to address particular issues.
The objective is to create a Girls Active delivery model which can be scaled up to cover every county in the UK. This will build on the work of the Girls Active pilot study aimed at tackling negative attitudes that girls have towards their body image and to PE.
Youth Sport Trust Head of Inclusion Julie Robbins said: "We fully support the objectives of Women's Sport Week to celebrate, raise awareness and increase the profile of women's sport across the UK. We wish to work together to inspire 100,000 girls to be more active by 2018."
