Women and Girls

Leeds Girls Can, established in 2015 as an offshoot of the national This Girl Can initiative by Sport England, is now under the management of Active Leeds. This funding came to end however we are keen to ensure women and girls in the City are able to continue accessing physical activity to support their health and well-being.

From cycling to work and conquering the school run to embracing the outdoors with your furry companion, we applaud the diverse ways you incorporate exercise into your daily life.

Recognising the significance of women and girls staying active, we've made it a top priority. Our mission is to provide every woman and girl with the opportunity to engage in physical activity on their terms. Whether it's a jog, a workout, or a stroll in the park, we're here to support and celebrate your unique fitness journey.

At Leeds Girls Can, we cover all stages of life, from energetic teens to expectant mothers and through the challenges of menopause. We believe that fitness is a lifelong journey, and we're committed to empowering women and girls at every step
