Keeping Girls in Sport

Learn how to create safe and respectful environments for girls to participate in sport and physical activity with this e-module for coaches and activity leaders, developed by Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities in partnership with Canadian Women & Sport and the Coaching Association of Canada. 

Studies have repeatedly shown that during adolescence, girls drop out of sport at a significantly higher rate than boys – 41 per cent of girls between the ages of 3 and 17 don’t participate in sport, and as girls enter adolescence, their overall participation rate drops by 22 per cent. In this e-module, coaches and activity leaders will build their understanding of how to address common motivators and barriers for girls and ultimately keep them engaged in sport.
