Physical activity in secondary school girls has been an issue for a long time. There is a large drop off in girl’s activity when they leave primary school. Active Merthyr Tydfil have been working to bridge this gap. In the development of this programme we have considered the data displayed in the school sports survey, the demographic of Merthyr Tydfil and identified certain barriers that girls face. With all of these factors in combination we have created a programme that can buck the trend. M Girls targets girls aged 10-16, and sessions are put on for those specific age groups. To find out more about these activities and how you can get involved please get in touch.
Check out our MGirls video below to see what the sessions are like!
