Virtual Summit 2020


2020 marks our 7th annual Fast and Female Summit and our 1-st ever Virtual Summit! Prior to COVID-19, our Annual Summit was an in-person day of empowerment through sports at Winsport in Calgary. We’re taking all the best elements of our Summit and going VIRTUAL, making this our first cross-Canada Summit! This year’s theme is BREAKING BARRIERS.

Our 2020 Virtual Summit includes six (6) sessions over the course of three (3) weeks focused on physical activity, hearing from our REAL (Relatable, Empowering, Active Leaders) Role Models, interactive workshops, and more! Participants will enjoy high-quality time with role models. Coaches, parents, guardians and allies will have the opportunities to hear from our amazing workshop leads.

Virtual Summit FAQ

How does a virtual summit work?

Good question! Our Virtual Summit has been designed to include all the best parts of our in-person summit: physical activity, inspirational Role Models, connection with other girls, empowerment and awesome Fast and Female swag! We will run our sessions every Tuesday and Thursday starting December 1st until December 17th. Prior to the start of our sessions, all participants will be put into a group of 25 participants with 2-3 Role Model Group leaders! You’ll get a welcome e-mail from your Role Model leaders and a chance to meet them all on December 1st. We’ll make sure to send out LOTS of information and encouragement before, during, and after the Summit.

How do I access the virtual sessions?

All our sessions will be hosted on Zoom – either Zoom Webinar or Zoom video call. Links will be sent out by November 30th and we will ensure to send out reminders 24 hours in advance and an hour prior to the start of the session!

Sessions can be joined by a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or cell-phone! You can choose to call in via phone or be on video (or both). We will send out more information and supporting information on access Zoom, Zoom etiquette and more.

I want to attend the summit but the cost is a barrier. What can I do?

Fast and Female is looking to provide 100% subsidized tickets to those that may face barriers to participating. If you would like to request access to the subsidized tickets, you can either e-mail us at or fill out this form. Fast and Female is committed to providing 50% of our subsidized tickets to participants that identify as being a part of a racialized or marginalized community. Thank you to our supporters for making these subsidized tickets possible!

Do I have to participate in every session?

Participation is highly encouraged! We will make sure to record every session in case you can’t make one of them and will send them all together at the end of our Summit programming. We will have different methods of engagement and interaction during our sessions, from break-out groups to polls, Q&A and more!

What if I miss a session?

Every session will be recorded! All recordings will be sent to participants afterwards. 

Is this just for girls?

Our Summit girls’ programming is created for self-identified girls, ages 8-14! Our Leaders in Training (LIT – ages 15-18) will also participate in our program, connecting prior to the Summit with all other LIT’s.

Our Parents/Guardians/Coaches/Allies workshops will be for anyone, ages 18+, who either work in sport and recreation that offers opportunities for self-identified girls or are allies looking to support creating a more safe and inclusive sport culture for all girls in sport.

Can I participate if I’m not in Canada?

Anyone can participate by registering; however, we are unable to ship items outside of Canada. 

Do I have to have a social media account to follow this?

No. We will send informational emails to the account you use to register. However, we will have our Role Models and other engagement pieces happening on our social media platforms, so we suggest checking in and following along.

Can I pick which colour t-shirt/hat will I get?

We will do our best to try to fill requests but there are no guarantees. We are a small but mighty team and will do our best!

I'm registering my sports team. Can we get a group discount?

If you are registering 10 or more participants as a group, please e-mail us at so we can discuss group pricing!
