Today (02/03/16) marks the 30th annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) which Celebrates the extraordinary achievements of those who have effected change and created opportunities for women and girls in sports over the past three decades.
This year’s NGWSD theme, Leading the Way, is a nod to all those individuals and organizations who are on the front line for girls and women in sports: the organizations committed to advancing women’s issues, athletes who have overcome barriers, coaches who challenge their teams to succeed, girls who have faith in their own potential and all those who continue to use the power of example to inspire greatness.
We here at Sport 4 Development Ireland salute Women in Sports everywhere for their commitment,leadership & achievements in the industry throughout the Years.

For 30 years, NGWSD has empowered women and girls to get moving, embrace physical activity and push past their limits both in sports and in life. We know that when girls participate in sports, they develop the leadership skills to excel in school, at home and in their communities. The courage, confidence and character gained through physical activity are the very tools girls need to become the strong leaders of tomorrow.
Lead the way in your community, too! Celebrate NGWSD and join us in Leading the Way in 2016. Check out the NGWSD Event Action Kit to find out how to get your own celebration started.
