Sheffield programme seeks to get more girls playing sport

Have your say

A Sheffield school has been selected to help develop a new programme to encourage girls to play more sport.

Handsworth Grange Community Sports College will be working in partnership with the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation to give girls aged 11 and 12 a chance to design their own programme of physical activity.

Research has found girls engage with sport in different ways to boys, and so it can be designed to have greater appeal.
