GRL PWR: Empowered Girls, Empower Girls.
BE SURE TO SIGN UP for some empowering information, great swag and fitness experiences! https://forms.gle/sEYe1v8RYuZXMsqr9
March 8th is International Women’s Day. Prairie Central and Rivers West Districts for Sport, Culture and Recreation invite you to join us for a Lunch & Learn focusing on “Building Social Connection for Lasting Participation in Sport” and “GRL PWR: Empowered Girls, Empower Girls”.
When a girl chooses to play sports, what she will gain goes far beyond kicking a ball, learning a new stroke, or crossing a finish line. Through positive sport experiences, girls are more likely to reap the benefits of sport participation and grow into confident and motivated leaders.
The session will include the TOP 10 in 10 Engagement Tools for Keeping Girls in Sport based on the Canadian Women and Sport Publication “She Belongs” presented and condensed by Lara Schroeder, Spark Solutions. She-Belongs_Canadian-Women-Sport.pdf (womenandsport.ca)
Following that we will bring together community champions: Joelle Buckle (Adaptive Sport), Jayden Lawson (Sask Games Athlete), Kaylan Berg (Girls in the Game) and Brian Grest (Horizon School Division), to share unique perspectives on engaging, empowering, and over coming hurdles with staying in sport and keeping girls in sport.
Did you know that a mom’s participation in sport increases the rate of her child’s by 22% !!!!!!

Canadian Women & Sport is the new name for CAAWS (Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity). Click here for their website.
“This is a modern organization that stands toe-to-toe with a powerful mission, believing sport is made better through gender equity, and can achieve equity for women in society through the power of sport.”
“The new logo speaks to the power of collaboration, solidarity, and connection – those critical links that make us stronger together. We meet our partners wherever they are on their gender equity journey and support them to take their next step, whatever that might be. The gradient element in our logo speaks to this spectrum, and to the power of momentum – a movement of many individuals coming together to advance a greater cause.”
As sport organizations respond to the COVID-19 crisis, they must not backtrack on steps taken toward gender equity. As with all sectors, sport in Canada has been upended, and unless we are careful, girls and women may be left on the sidelines of the recovery. Bringing a gender lens to your “return to sport and play” planning will set you up for success, mitigate risks and create opportunities for your entire program or organization. Read more
She’s Got It All is another campaign demonstrating that while women and girls have what it takes to succeed in sport, including talent, drive and determination, they still have to overcome barriers that are typically not present for men. Check it out.
