#SheGotGame

‘She Got Game!’ is a follow-up to the previous Erasmus+ project: ‘Changing the Game by Changing its Players’. The previous project showed that the number one issue many European youth work and community sport organisations struggle with is girls participation. ‘We find very few girls participating in our activities’, said community sport coaches from Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Antwerp, ‘our managers want us to attain an equal percentage of boys and girls participating but the current reality is still far removed from that’.

The objective of the ‘She Got Game!’ programme is to get community sport organisations and community sport coaches to think and act differently on how to design, implement and evaluate interventions for teenage girls in order to increase Girls Engagement.

The project will be collaborating on developing:

  1. A good practice ‘how to guide’ to be available for organisations around challenges and good practice covering various themes, from various programmes targeting girls in different countries.
  2. A training offer will be developed to support volunteers, coaches, organisations and champions, to equip them to approach communities and girls as assets to be learned from. The training will cover how to take the voice of the girls into consideration, whether they are active or inactive, and how to change the way in which programmes are organised to better include girls

A number of wider opportunities from this project will include: a chance for young people to travel to Belgium; the use of StreetGames ‘Engaging Women and Girls’ How to Guide as a blue print for development and opportunities for our Network to share good practice.
