The South Yorkshire School Games team recognises the impact Covid-19 has had on young girls in the county. As a result, we are excited to have put together the South Yorkshire School Games This Girl Can Week which will take place between Monday 24 May and Friday 28 May.
We know that the greatest influence on adolescent girls are their friends and other inspirational women that create a positive environment to be active and grow as individuals. As a result, we have developed a series of videos created by local women. The videos include self-scare content and guided physical activity videos including street-dance and boxercise. These videos will be shared with schools to use throughout the week in whichever way suits them.
This week is the start of a series of work the South Yorkshire School Games team are putting together to target young girls in our county to encourage healthier lifestyles.
