Coaching Women and Girls Resources
Keeping Girls in Sport was developed in partnership with Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the Coaching Association of Canada, and the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport. This 90-minute interactive online course is worth two (2) PD points toward NCCP maintenance of certification. Keeping Girls in Sport helps coaches, mentors, and leaders understand what girls need to feel included, be successful, and stay active.
The Rally Report shows that sport participation levels for Canadian girls are much lower than boys. Among girls who have participated in sport, there is a dramatic dropout rate observed with 1 in 3 girls leaving sport by late adolescence. By comparison, the dropout rate for teenage boys (aged 16-18) is only 1 in 10. Sport participation rates for Canadian girls decline steadily from childhood to adolescence with as many as 62% of girls not playing sport at all.This study is designed to inform, educate, and inspire action across Canada and to keep girls in sport.
