Using sport as an agent for change to empower girls across Ireland.
In Ireland, teenage girls are dropping out of sports at twice the rate of boys. Just 7% of girls aged 14-15 meet the minimum recommended amount of physical activity levels. This has far-reaching consequences that impacts on physical and mental health, and social and academic outcomes.
Move2B’s mission is to retain teenage girls in sport and to ensure girls have the resources to help them discover and retain their athletic and personal potential. Orna and Niamh do this by using evidence-based research to provide coaches, teachers, and young girls with a toolkit to address obstacles to physical activity in their unique contexts.
