Thoughts on Girl’s Participation

 Demi Mitchell, Active East Youth Worker

Female participation in sport and physical activity for me is very important.

There are so many benefits I gain from being physically active such as keeping myself fit, feeling good about myself, and having time to clear my head. Sport has always been such a huge part of my life and over the years I have seen the number of females participating in sport increase, which is AMAZING!

I think its important females have role models to look up to in sport: whether that is their sporting hero, a family member, or a coach who has a positive influence in their physical activity levels. Girls encouraging other girls in sport is the most powerful attitude to have!
