DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs, East Atlanta Kids Club, and Duluth Adventist Christian School are partnering with Netball America to provide FREE Be An Inspiration (BAI) GoGirlGo! Programs to their community youth aged 8 to 18. This will impact over 1,000 girls! The US and Global Award-Winning Be An Inspiration Program is an initiative of Netball America Inc. that uses sport as a platform to empower youth for peace and strong futures, while increasing participation in sports, reducing childhood obesity, breaking down barriers to reduce discrimination, and increasing social-emotional well-being. The program aligns with the Get Kids Moving! and the Aspen Institute’s 8 rights of Children’s Bill of Rights in Sports. The curriculum activities were developed in partnership with TrueSport and are powered by the experience and values of USADA (the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency). The program aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
“Netball America has designed a fun education, nutrition and physical fitness program that takes the pressure off girls having to lose weight, be athletes, be rough in sports and instead focuses them on participation in fun-filled activities on topics such as decision making, goal setting, body image, leadership etc, while forming healthy habits and learning the globally popular and inclusive sport of Netball”, says BAI Head Coach Kie McCrae.
Over the past 12 months, this program has helped drive positive social transformation in over 1,000 girls. Program results show that 100% of participants have a safe and inclusive place to come together to develop confidence, social skills, self-management, better nutrition behaviors, all while learning the globally popular sport of netball.
