GOing Places – Girls-Only Soccer Camp

We are excited to present the inaugural week of our girls-only soccer camp, ‘GOing Places’, for the first time in the history of West Rouge Soccer Club!

There is only one week of this camp, and it is taking place at Adams Park, from July 4th-8th 2022.

ABOUT

Did you know:

  • 1 in 4 girls are not committed to returning to their pre-pandemic sport participation levels post COVID-19
  • 1 in 3 girls exit sport because of poor perceptions of belonging and feeling unwelcome

GOing places endeavors to address these gaps and provides an equitable, safe and fun opportunity to get girls (ages 4-12) back to their pre-pandemic sport participation levels or get girls playing the game for the first time. As a girls-only offering, GOing Places is grounded in a gender-equity approach and is a tailored opportunity for girls to gain confidence and competence in social and physical activity settings.

FOCUS

GOing Places’ primary focus is creating a safe and supportive environment for girls to enhance their physical literacy, have fun and develop friendships through participation in various physical and non-sport-based activities. Across the week, campers will engage with a wide-range of tailored offerings to explore and enjoy, including opportunities for:

  • Progressive honing of essential soccer skills and learning basic rules of the game
  • Creative non-sport specific programming (i.e., arts and crafts, nature exploration etc.)
  • Cooperative games

PHILOSOPHY

 

As a camp developed and delivered by girls, for girls, our philosophy is to create and hold space for girls to engage with and share in positive sport experiences alongside their peers, in order to inspire their confidence and drive for sustained engagement across the spectrum of existing and emerging opportunities for their current and future sport involvement.

The GIRLS are GOing places … Can’t wait to see you there!
