This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
Developed by Sport England, and promoted locally by us here at Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, we want to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in.
This Girl Can Week is returning!
This special campaign week is designed to inspire our local ladies to increase their activity levels and get moving.
The week offers women and girls of all ages and activity levels some amazing opportunities to try new sports and activities, increasing their confidence and self-esteem and enjoy more time with new and existing friends.
In partnership with localities, the week will see over 200 sessions available for females, including Zumba, Clubbercise and Beginner Running!
More information and the Activity Timetables will be available here very soon...
Meet our Girls!
