GirlForce is a programme and social brand that looks to help young women develop confidence through fitness. It offers an alternative social group that motivates its peers to be active and to enjoy being active. It creates a foundation from which young women can improve self esteem and resilience.
GirlForce has been developed through the work of UsGrils and uses this best practice to shape the prgramme. The brand aspect of GirlForce is what helps bind young women together to form a social support network, to help counter balance negative attitudes and experiecnes from others
GirlForce is delivered by Active Connections across Gloucestershire. We are always looking to support others to deliver the GirlForce brand in other areas. We do offer a GirlForce package with training to do this. Please see How to Get Involved section.
The delivery of GirlForce has been developed by Carly Price. Her ability to engage all young women into fitness has led to the creation of this programme. Sessions are normally based upon a social fitness model, utilising some of our glow in the dark products as well as other alternative activities. GirlForce sessions have engaged hundreds of young women and girls with sessions sometimes having 30-40 participants.
It is hard to bottle and replicate some programmes. It is normally down to the leaders, but we have put together a package to help these leaders use GirlForce in their programmes. By creating a wider network we will help create the platform for girls and young women to flourish.
GirlForce packages include;
Branded T-Shirts, fitness clothing and Accessories
GirlForce equipment pack (inc GlowFitness and Beatz)
The cost of the package is £695+ VAT, funding is available but limited. please get in touch to find out more.
Active Connections have been delivering their GirlForce programme within our school since the summer. There has been great success with girls aged 11+ participating in a female only offer. Due to the benefits and engagement from our students we would love to continue in partnership with Active Connections to deliver the GirlForce programme.
Active Connections is a not for profit that connects people to the benefits of sport and fitness. We focus on the wider benefits of being active, working with partners to deliver award wining campiagns and projects.
