EMPOWERING GIRLS

THROUGH SPORT

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND EDUCATION

Empowering girls aged 8 to 18 is at the heart of our mission. Through our evidence-based curriculum designed by industry leaders, we foster confidence and leadership skills during our events and programs. Our curriculum is crafted to provide girl-centred opportunities, allowing our participants to connect with passionate REAL (Relatable, Empowered, Active Leaders) Role Models.

OUR EVENTS & PROGRAMS

Fast and Female hosts non-competitive, fun-filled events and programs throughout Canada that introduce self-identified girls aged 8-20 to inspiring active role models. The experience is designed so that girls emerge empowered to lay their claim to the powerful leadership and life skills that sport participation provides.

Why We Do What We Do!
50%

of girls are not participating in sport by the time they reach adolescence (CWS, 2022)

35%

of girls feel they are not expected to be good at sport, compared to 4% of boys (Women in Sport, 2023)

94%

of women in C-Suite leadership positions played sport growing up (Ernst and Young, 2018)

Fast and Female is aware that the experiences and barriers faced by girls and gender-diverse participants may be heightened when looking at their experiences through an intersectional lens: this includes their intersecting identities beyond gender, such as race, ethnicity, religion, culture, ability, economic status, sexuality and more.
