Encouraging girls in sport

kae20180711_037_bearbII


In Switzerland, girls and young women are not actively compared with boys on a physical or sporting level. 

Statistics concerning participation in organised sports lead us to assume that girls have poorer access to organised sports than their male peers. This is particularly the case for girls with a migratory background. This may be due to the sports structures in place, such as the absence of suitable sports opportunities, or to the personal situations of girls and young women (e.g. a lack of time or financial resources, insufficient knowledge of available offerings, distance from home).

FOSPO is committed to encouraging girls in sport in cooperation with the Laureus Foundation Switzerland. Furthermore, FOSPO will also subsidise practical and research-based projects for the period 2020-2022. These projects should encourage the uptake of sports and physical activity among girls – particularly those with a migratory background – and/or improve their social integration. Potential recipients of financial aid include persons or organisations working at the intersection of sports and integration and who do not pursue commercial objectives.
