The Active Girls Committee aims to be positive role models to get more girls active in Aberdeen!!

by Active Girls Committee in Aberdeen, Scotland, United Kingdom

Active Schools Aberdeen has pledged £500 towards this project! 

We are seeking pledges from the Crowd so that we can empower more girls in the city to be active. The Crowd's support will help us to engage with girls and young women to encourage them to take part in activites that will enhance their general health and wellbeing.

The Active Girls Committee has the aim of getting more girls in Aberdeen active and enjoying the many benefits of taking part in sport and activities. We are made made up of girls from across secondary schools in the city and are supported by Sport Aberdeen’s Active Schools Team.

We will do this through organising a series of events for girls and we need the help of the crowd to fund these. Our vision includes;-

Girls Big Day Out Taster Event

June 2017 (part of Women in Sport Week)

Taster Day at Aberdeen Sports Village with numerous activities such as fitness classes, dance and a variety of sports for girls from across all academies in the city to come and try. Each academy will be invited to take part and send girls to take part.

10 Local Taster Events

Various Dates throughout the school year

A calendar of local area taster events aimed at getting more girls to be active will be held across the city. These will give girls the chance to try new activities with their local area

 Awareness Raising Evening

An evening event to celebrate the launch of the Active Girls Committee, to raise awareness and generate support. This event will be aimed at engaging with influential women who are key decision both local and nationally to help us achieve our aim of getting more girls active
