Worcs Girls Can

Following the extremely successful campaign in Malvern last year, 'Worcs Girls Can' returns to Worcestershire, this time on a county-wide basis. Last year's campaign offered 61 different activities across a range of schools and sports clubs, engaging approximately 500 young women in Malvern; 2017 promises to be even bigger and better!

According to Sport England only 31.6% of women play sport at least once a week compared to 41.7% of men. Nationally, 13 million women and girls said they wanted to play more sport, of whom, nearly half are currently inactive! There are also growing concerns over mental health problems experienced by teenage girls as recently indicated by a Department for Education study published over the summer. Physical activity is renowned for being as good for the mind as it is the body, helping to reduce stress, increase self-esteem and reduce the risk of depression and anxiety. Worcs Girls Can is a campaign aiming to change female's perception of sport and physical activity therefore we've partnered with six lead schools across Worcestershire to get our girls moving.
