Cast your mind back to playing sport as a kid – the freedom and fun of running, jumping and cartwheeling… Did that carefree joy start to dwindle as puberty hit? Sadly, for many young girls, this is exactly what happens.
Always are giving us the chance to make a difference. They teamed up with a number of powerful and inspirational women to find out what sport means to them – and now it’s your turn!
We want you to share your personal stories and serve as a role model to young women. What’s more, you can be in with a shot at winning one of 28x £250 Decathlon vouchers by doing so! Here’s how…
How to get involved – and help girls stay in sports
As part of this very important savvy circle project group, we’re sharing our stories on Instagram to inspire a whole generation of girls, who run the risk of missing out on the transformative power of sport, and get communities behind the campaign.
How to share (and inspire)?
There are many ways to get involved. If you’re looking for inspiration, then check out the posts from the team at the end of this blog or consider sharing one of the following:
- A walk down memory lane
Do you have a throwback picture of you playing sport as a teen? Or a group pic of your childhood team that triggers the best memories? We want to see your old pics and hear your nostalgic sporting tales!
- Still playing?
Fab! If you are still as sporty as ever then get out your sport gear, take a proud snap and upload it to your socials.
- Get descriptive
The aim of our project is to encourage young girls to either stay in, or get back to playing sport. In the caption, share how you benefitted from doing sport, the life skills it taught you or what connections you made. If you dropped out of playing sports, then let others know what you miss about playing.
- Bring others onboard!
Your mission will not be complete until you let your friends and followers know that they can also contribute to this movement! By purchasing a pack of Always Ultra, Always Platinum or Tampax Compak Pearl, they will trigger a donation from Always to Sported to help them keep girls involved in sports. The more people we reach, the more girls we can help!
You should share to Instagram, and make sure to use the right tags and hashtags, so Always can see your posts: #KeepHerPlaying, #savvycircle, @always_uk_ireland, @SportedUK
