She Got Game is an Erasmus+ project which aims to increase girls’ engagement in physical activity.
She Got Game is a follow-up to a previous Erasmus+ project, ‘Changing the Game by Changing its Players’. The previous project showed that the number one issue that many European youth work and community sport organisations struggle with is girls’ participation.
The objective of the She Got Game programme is to encourage community sport organisations and coaches to think and act differently on how to design, implement and evaluate interventions for teenage girls in order to increase their engagement.
Key to the approach of this project is to see the girls as assets to be supported rather than problems to be solved. The project starts from the viewpoint that to meet the needs of girls, sport and physical activity organisations require support to change their thinking and practices. Sport needs to become more diverse and inclusive and girls should be involved in designing and implementing activities.
She Got Game is a partnership of three sports NGOs, a governmental sports organisation and a university, spanning four European countries: Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and the UK.
