Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week 2023 is here!

Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week launched today and is running until Sunday 8 October. This year has kicked off with a campaign film featuring Footballer Leanne Crichton, a Scotland International Player with 72 caps, who encourages all women and girls to get involved. 

Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week 2023 Recap

The Week aims to inspire and support every woman and girl in Scotland to get active. It doesn't matter who they are or what their ability, all women and girls can get involved. It also looks to highlight the physical, mental and social benefits that getting active and participating in sport or physical activity can bring.

Campaign Social Media Film Launch

This Week, every woman and girl in Scotland is invited to join an 'unofficial' nationwide team line-up. Any women or girl can join, no matter who they are or what physical activity they do - it all counts! We want to spread the word and encourage as many women and girls across Scotland as possible to get involved. 

We would really appreciate your support in sharing the film across your audiences via Active Scotland's Twitter here.

Alternatively, you can post the campaign film directly from your channels using the film and accompanying copy found via the SG Campaign Resource Centre here.
