Recent studies tell us that girls are less active than boys at all ages, with English girls being among some of the least active in the world.
It is thought that only 16% of girls meet the UK physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity activity each day.
We all know the benefit of a healthy lifestyle and how embedding these values in children will help provide a healthy sporting habit for life.
With this in mind, Salisbury City Council along with Magna Learning Partnership are providing a low-cost sporting opportunity for girls in school years 5 to 8 in the Salisbury area on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30pm at Sarum Academy (term time only) starting in January.
Just For Girls Multi-sport will deliver games and activities alongside a variety of sports related activities such as hockey, football, cricket and dodgeball.
The club will be delivered by Ellie, from District Sports who will ensure that the children have an opportunity to try a range of activities. Alongside Ellie, additional coaches coming in to deliver specific sports where needed.
Participants will initially receive five free sessions and if they wish to continue can pre-book to secure their places at a cost of £3 per session (these will need to be paid for up front).
To run these sessions the organisers need volunteers to help, so if you would like to volunteer for some or all the sessions or if you would like more information related to this project and how you can help, please email email@example.com
