preventing girls from taking part in sports programs, you will focus on three main areas:
First, we will explore the world of access and recruitment, understand the factors that contribute to girls being able to access the pitch, and strategies to recruit new participants. 
Second, we will continue the journey through the concept of inclusion: how do we make sure that every girl is included, feels valued, and has the opportunity to play?
