Falmouth & Penryn Boxing Club in Cornwall is part of Women in Sport and Sported’s Project 51 initiative, a joint programme helping girls in some of the most deprived areas of the UK fulfil their potential.
Through Project 51, which focuses on tackling gender stereotypes, the club has created a 'ladies only session' for girls and women aged 13 plus and arranged for one of their committed members and Project 51 Young Influencer Morgan (aged 17), to complete her Level 1 coaching qualification so she could assist with delivery of the sessions.
Now a newly-qualified Level 1 boxing coach, Morgan is co-leading the club’s new session and her positive attitude, passion and determination has been instrumental to encouraging more girls to give the sport a go.
GOGA Wrexham workshop and awards
Women in Sport and Get Out Get Active Wrexham held a solutions workshop with local women as the final stage of our insight gathering for the inclusive activity project.
Current and lapsed GOGA participants were consulted on their views on a range of topics including sustaining participation, progression through GOGA and communication.
Consulting with participants is a crucial part of sustained involvement. We look forward to sharing the full insight next year.
GOGA was recognised at the Getting Wales Active Awards for its great work in the community. Congratulations to all the coaches, volunteers, clubs, participants and partners who have been part of the project. We’re proud to be a part of it!
