Note from the Owner & Founder
I think the key to being an effective change-maker is the motivation to do everything you possibly can to set girls up to be successful in all aspects of their life. The next generation will always be the key to the future success of our nation. It’s our responsibility to set them up with the proper skills to navigate this changing world. My vision is to help grow girls' confidence to be change makers and barrier breakers of the future through physical activity and sport. I believe this will help them become well rounded so they can participate in any type of physical activity and bring life long success in whatever future career they decide to pursue. I want to be able to give girls the knowledge and confidence that they need to carry on into adulthood in order to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle.
The community support has been overwhelming and I’m excited to see where this goes next!

Girls need sports. Period.
Girls In Sport AB's vision is to help grow girls' confidence to be change makers and barrier breakers of the future through physical activity and sport
Girls In Sport AB will do this by providing strategies to increase girls confidence in their physical and mental ability through sport and physical activity while enjoying the benefit of staying active for life. Through local research and collaboration with other experts in the field Girls in Sport AB intends to increase girls participation in competitive, recreational and lifestyle sport.
With some great disparity and unequal fund distribution with girls sports programs, we want to begin to make it more accessible.
This campaign starts with YOU. Let’s make sure that YOUR daughters have the same opportunities to PLAY AND COMPETE!
