Active Girls Day / Scottish Women & Girls in Sport Week

Active Girls Day - Friday 6th October 2017

On Friday 6th October 2017, we'll be celebrating the amazing work going into girls' sport and the incredible role models making it happen.

Activities will be happening across Scotland, and your club, school or hub can get involved by planning an activity or event!

You can also help us raise the profile of girls' sport on social media - tweet us using @sportscotland and #ActiveGirls, or post on Instagram tagging @sportscotland_ - we'll be sharing these across our channels. Check out last year's social media highlights here or see below for some ideas.

You can promote your activities using our Active Girls Day poster, and download our promotional materials to use on social media. Let us know how you're getting involved!

Scottish Women & Girls in Sport Week - 1st-8th October 2017

Active Girls Day takes place in Scottish Women & Girls in Sport Week (1st-8th October). The week is coordinated by the Scottish Government and aims to raise awareness of increasing participation in sport and physical activity among women and girls, and the barriers to participation. 

We'd love for you to help spread the word on social media, and to help raise the profile of women and girls' sport and physical activity. Here are a few ideas of how you can use social media to get involved in both Active Girls Day and SWGSW. 

Tips: How to get involved on social media

  • Post about a female role model - this could be an athlete who's inspired you, or someone from your club, hub, school or community who's making a difference to sport. Template: Scottish Women & Girls in Sport Week Role Models
  • Tell us about your experience of sport - what are the benefits of being involved in sport, or how has it had an impact on your life? #myjourney
  • Share photos/stories of how your club, hub or school is promoting sport & physical activity for girls throughout the year. 
  • Join us for #SportHour on Mon 2 October - this month's theme is girls' participation and is co-hosted by Sports Minister, Aileen Campbell. Find out how to take part here
  • If you're organising an event, activity or taster session on Active Girls Day, post photos/videos or interviews to show everyone what you're up to!

Tag us @sportscotland or use #ActiveGirls (Active Girls Day) or #myJourney (Scottish Women & Girls in Sport Week) and we'll share as much as we can!
