Women and Girls Rugby Programs in the DMV

By age 14, many girls are dropping out of sports at twice the rate of boys.

Annually, boys get 1.13 million more sports opportunities than girls.

40% of teen girls are not actively participating in sport.

The Women’s Sports Foundation has identified key factors which contribute to these alarming statistics.  Girls drop out of sports because of lack of access, safety and transportation issues, social stigma, cost, and a lack of positive role models.

Through sports, children learn important life skills such as teamwork, leadership and confidence.  It is all of our responsibility to break down barriers, create opportunities, and encourage girls and women to stay in sports.
