Active Sussex launches #ThisGirlCan Basketball Project

Categories: Active Sussex Programmes This Girl Can

Active Sussex are running a 'This Girl Can' Basketball project in Eastbourne, Hastings & Mid Sussex for 14-16 year-old girls.

Delivered by qualified and highly experienced coaches, the girls basketball sessions include a programme of introductory skills using Basketball England's 'Activator Award' resources.

The project is based on two previously successful projects - 'Sportivate Sussex Basketball Activation' and 'Sportivate Girls Best Shot' - delivered by BasketballSUSSEX's Miguel Tello, and saw over 500 participants take part.

This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or how sweaty they get.

Active Sussex Sports Projects Officer Sid Fletcher, said: ‘This project will enable more girls to take up the sport and get involved running their own activities. With the support of local clubs, we have a great opportunity to develop the next generation of female players in Sussex.’
