To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March, the Federation of Irish Sport 20x20 Team are asking everyone to #ShowYourStripes by pledging one action to support girls and women in sport in 2019.
By all doing something we can make a genuine shift across the country. We can give more sport to a nation of sport lovers, as well as the gift of sport to more girls.
To show your support post your action (big or small) online using #ShowYourStripes and #20x20.
Irish Sailing pledge to encourage women to "Take the Tiller and Own It" through the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm event in August. See our facebook for today's #ShowYourStripes competition.
There are so many ways to /ShowYourStripes.
Here's a few for you to consider ...
If you’re female, age 1 to 100, you could pledge to find an activity that you love and keep it up – as a player, as a coach or as a supporter – from football to frisbee, cricket to canoeing, or tennis to triathlon.
If you’re a Sports Fan you could pledge to go to at least events this year.
Put the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm date in your diary and pledge to join as a sailor, volunteer or spectator.
If you’re a Sailor you could pledge to introduce one or more girls to your sport.
If you’re a Coach you could pledge to give some expertise to developing a female sailor or group.
If you’re a Teacher you could pledge to give more opportunities or support to girls when it comes to sport.
If you’re an Elite Athlete you could pledge to give a masterclass to girls who are aspiring to get there.
If you’re a Sports Club you could pledge to ensure parity with male and female athletes across the club.
