Team Girls is dedicated to fostering and promoting girls’ participation in sport. It’s about girls supporting girls, building up their confidence, and knowing they’re stronger when they stand together – on and off the court.
She says she is not sporty and doesn’t like sport? She says she is not good enough to make the team? She doesn’t want to play anymore because it's gotten too serious? She wants to quit because life is too busy?
When it comes to girls and sport, these are all problems that most parents, coaches or mentors face at some stage. Girls dropping out of sport is an issue that needs addressing according to the recent 2019 Australian Youth Confidence Report, which revealed that 46% of girls are turning their back on sport by the age of 17.
It’s also the reason that the Suncorp Team Girls program was established, because our research also tells us that sport makes girls feel more confident. It plays a critical role in nurturing their perseverance, resilience and confidence; essential skills teen girls need now and in the future. Team Girls is committed to keeping girls in the game and decreasing their drop out rate in sport.
