Research carried out by Sport England reveals that fewer women than men play sport regularly – two million fewer 14-40-year-olds in total. Despite this, 75 percent say they want to be more active. At Huddersfield Community Trust we are passionate about breaking down those barriers that put women and girls off of exercising. We focus on working together with women and girls to support and develop them turn their ambitions into reality. We had the ability to do this through our Girls Rugby League School Festival at The Zone on Friday 4th May and received the following feedback from Catherine Ketteringham, Achievement Leader for PE, Technology and Science at Almondbury Community School…
Thank you so much for taking over and running the Touch competition this year and thank you for coming in and supporting the delivery of girls’ rugby this year. The girls and I are elated and we wouldn’t have achieved that fantastic result without your input, getting the girls down to the Touch rugby sessions on Wednesdays and introducing them to St Joe’s rugby club. It was a victory for all involved.
Also, it was wonderful to see the U19s with their club shirts on the pitch at halftime. That was a really nice touch. When the fixtures are organised I’ll display them to try and get the girls to come down and watch.
