Women and Girls

Sport Nova Scotia's Women and Girls Task Force is excited to share our vision and what we’ve been up to for the past few months.  

The vision of the group is to increase programs and services targeted to women and girls in sport. We’ve started to explore the barriers that women and girls face when it comes to participating in sport, and we’ve created a learning series with two streams for females and those who identify as female- the coaching stream and the leadership development stream. The series will start this month (January) and will run until June.  

These sessions have been designed to inspire, empower, and educate female leaders in sport throughout the province. Whether you work for a sport organization, coach a team, sit on a board of directors, or aspire to be a part of a sporting organization, all females and those who identify as female are welcome. Join us and hear from some great Nova Scotia leaders, as well as a few special guests from across the country.
