WOMANS SPORTS FOUNDATION SAYS:FULL ACCESS MEANS EVERY GIRL CAN REAP THE BENEFITS OF SPORT
Fact: By 14, girls are two-times more likely to drop out of sports than boys are.
We know girls growing up in underserved communities are the least likely to be active. This year, we proudly announced a new partnership with New York Junior Tennis and Learning where girls in The Bronx will learn life skills and get active through our GoGirlGo! Program. And with a nationwide focus, we continued our longstanding commitment to girls across the country. Find out how GoGirlGo! changed the lives of girls from across the country.
FULL ACCESS IS ABOUT
OPPORTUNITIES TO ACHIEVE GREATNESS
Fact: The scarcity of funding for women even at the highest levels of sport is a decisive factor in and potential barrier to the success of highly talented athletes.
We ramped up our Travel & Training Fund grants in 2013, providing even more financial help to aspiring athletes in their quest for excellence. And we are proud to support incredible athletes in their quest for the 2014 U.S. Olympic team, such as Emily Azevedo, a bobsledder, and Rosie Brennan, a cross country skier. Find out how our support helps fuel their dreams.
