AoC Sport awards colleges extra This Girl Can funding

AoC Sport has awarded 24 colleges £200 funding to help further develop their This Girl Can ambassador projects within their colleges.

The This Girl Can Ambassadors promote and deliver new and existing college activities to try and encourage their female students to get active.

The funding will allow the ambassadors to provide more varied and vibrant opportunities for less active female students to participate in sport or physical activity.

These could include This Girl Can festivals, weekly glow sport activities, roller discos and mass participation events like fun runs and inflatable courses.

We look forward to seeing these amazing events in action and seeing what impact they have on female participation within the colleges.

The full list of ambassadors can be found here.
