Inner Strength - Outer Confidence for teenage girls
The Women’s Sports Network is publishing a series of manuals to help teenage girls starting out in competitive sport to develop greater body confidence in parallel with sport-related skills. Targeted at clubs, coaches, schools, parents and teenagers – the MoJoManuals are predicated on 'Physical Literacy' but also cover a range of other issues which impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport.
Not just Physical Literacy
In addition to Physical Literacy' MoJoManuals cover, diet, anxiety, menstruation, breast health & sports bras, sleep/rest, re-hydration, body image and social media. We are working with a number of expert contributors to develop this range of manual's.
ROWMoJo, FOOTBALLMoJo & LACROSSEMoJo were launched on 8 March 2018 (IWD2018) and we are interested in working with NGBs and expert coaches to extend our range of manuals to sports worldwide.
We are targetting these manuals at schools, clubs, coaches parents - as well as the girls themselves. They are written such that the athletes can read at one level and adults at another - offering opportunity for discussion and development.
If you feel you understand some of the issues faced by pubescent girls starting out in your sport and would like to help generate a MoJoManual for your sport or would like to be a WSNet ‘lead’ on Physical Literacy for your sport, please make contact by emailing Jo - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please provide a few details of your experiences and some key views on coaching girls in your sport.
