Girls In Sport

Keeping Girls Active, Healthy, and Empowered.

Studies have repeatedly shown that girls drop out of sports at a much higher rate than boys. At Jumpstart, we're empowering them to stay engaged for life, so they can grow into strong leaders in their communities.

Games for Girls

Since 2016, we've hosted several Jumpstart Games for Girls across Canada. Inspired by our Chairman Emeritus, Martha Billes, these games are a fun day of play where girls can get active and feel inspired to stay that way throughout their adolescence and for the rest of their lives.
