Girls In Sport AB’s vision is to help grow girls’ confidence to be change makers and barrier breakers of the future through physical activity and sport

Girls In Sport AB will do this by providing strategies to increase girls confidence in their physical and mental ability through sport and physical activity while enjoying the benefit of staying active for life. Through local research and collaboration with other experts in the field Girls in Sport AB intends to increase girls participation in competitive, recreational and lifestyle sport.
