Girls Soar

The Girls Soar Initiative aimed to facilitate and advocate for an environment that is supportive of girls and young women being physically active.  

The goal areas within the action plan are:

  • Build knowledge and skills in those influencing physical activity in girls and young women;
  • Create a Girls Soar network to provide a supportive environment for those working to share, learn, and celebrate physical activity for  girls and young women and;
  • Grow the number and quality opportunities which allow girls and young women to develop the confidence and capability to enjoy a variety of physical activity activities.
