As parents, educators, and coaches, it's our job to make sure girls have equal opportunities in sports. Unfortunately, the number of girls who are dropping out of sports at an alarming rate is a cause for concern. By the age of 14, girls are dropping out of sports at twice the rate of boys. By the age of 17 more than half of girls (51%) will have quit a team sport. Sports aren't just about physical activity — they're also about learning valuable life lessons. Teamwork, resilience, perseverance, confidence: these skills are integral parts of playing on a team and can last a lifetime. We want to see more girls equipped with these essential tools for success. We believe that when girls play sports, everyone wins. That's why we created the "You Do Belong" initiative — to help young girls experience the power of sport.
