Girls Active Coaches Camp - Virtual

The Girls Active Coaches Camp is a unique opportunity for 150 girls aged 14-17 across England. Girls who are currently part of localised Coach/Activator Academies will be selected to take part. The experience aims to support girls to return to school and feel confident in shaping and delivering sessions for their less-active peers.

Description

Target group: Girls aged 14-17 currently involved in a Lead School Coach/Activator Academy programme.

How to get involved: Schools connected to Coach/Activator programmes will be provided with information from their lead school about how their young people can access this opportunity. The young people involved will also be made aware of the selection process directly from their local deliverer.

Programme information: The Girls Active Coaches Camp (GACC) for 2021 will be taking place virtually due to COVID-19. Girls will be provided with the opportunity to attend tutor led sessions building a relationship with their small GACC group team. In addition, they will hear from inspirational speakers and will have the opportunity to take part in different sporting activities virtually. The Camp will take place 11-13 June 2021.

The Camp aims to inspire confidence, challenge young people to be outside of their comfort zone whilst providing a supportive and safe environment to work with like-minded young people. Those that attend the virtual camp will be upskilled to help shape and drive activity sessions on return to their school. Young people will deliver either a virtual or face to face festival designed to help reach some of their least active peers.
