Three Sports, Three World Cups, One Inspiring Vision.
We are now in the final year of Cricket, Netball and Hockey coming together to inspire girls to take up sport, these sports wanted to maximise the legacy of the World Cups and ensure girls could access coaching and events.
Schools play a large part in girls’ early experience of team sports, therefore it is crucial that we support schools and teachers to ensure there is a positive and lasting legacy from the World Cups that have taken place over the last three years and that we embed this into school life. The aim is to ensure girls receive coaching, trips to watch elite sport and the opportunity to take part in competitions. For more information contact [email protected].
