Glos Girls Can

Glos Girls Can

This Girl Can is a celebration of the active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get. It’s a national campaign developed by Sport England to inspire more women and girls to wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome.

Glos Girls Can aims to tackle the rising gender gap between the number of men and women playing sport and increase Gloucestershires falling statistic of active females. We are encouraging all local participants, clubs, facilities, instructors and coaches to engage with this campaign and help us get more females in Gloucestershire wiggling and jiggling.

GlosGirlsCan: Female Coaching Bursary

Women only account for around 30% of the coaching workforce; this proportion drops to 17% of qualified coaches & only 12% of highly qualified coaches. We want to work with you to empower, motivate & inspire women to come together & be more active. The GlosGirlsCan: Female Coaching Bursary was an opportunity for new & developing female coaches, leaders, & activators to access financial support towards qualifications, training, & workshops.

The bursary included up to 50% reimbursement towards the cost of any workshops, qualifications, or training (up to the value of £250.00) in return for hours of logged sport or physical activity delivery within a club or community setting.

The bursaries saw Active Gloucestershire help fund the development of the county’s female workforce, specifically those who: · Support less active females to be more active · Face additional challenges or barriers themselves · Lead physical activity in a voluntary capacity or community setting

In 2018 Active Gloucestershire granted a total of £6000 to support 49 female coaches, leaders & instructors via the GlosGirlsCan Female Coaching Bursary.
