ICOACHGIRLS – Girls Play Centre

December 6, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 6, 2023

Girls Play Centres

  • ICOACHGIRLS aims to promote and increase physical activity and sport amongst primary school age girls through the creation of “Girls Play Centres”.
  • The centres will be aimed at girls that have never taken part in organised sport or that have tried and dropped out.
  • Each centre will be staffed by two head coaches to provide the girls with friendly, relatable role models.
  • The head coaches will work with the girls to co-create a 10- session programme of activities which meets their social, psychological and physical needs, gives them a sense of ownership, and allows them to build a positive relationship with sport and physical activity.
  • After the 10 sessions, the girls will be signposted to a series of sport clubs and active leisure activities in order to support their continuous involvement.

10 Week Programme

At the heart of the ICOACHGIRLS project is a 10-week programme to be delivered to girls aged 5-11 years who are not currently participating in sport or physical activity.

By engaging them in the 10-week programme of physical activity, the aims are to support each girl to:

  • Develop a love of being active, tuning in to their internal motivation for being active, and being able to express that through body language and words.
  • Provide them with age-appropriate knowledge on being physically active and the activities they do in the programme.
  • Equip them with foundational movement skills linked to balance, co-ordination and agility.
  • Develop their competence, perceived competence and confidence in their abilities in physical activity.
  • Support each girl to be physically literate for her age.
  • Identify an activity or sport that they could take part in in their community.
  • Engage their parents/guardians in encouraging and supporting each girl to engage in the programme and to transition to an activity/club in their local community.
