The Project will work with over 150 BAME girls in the community aged 10-16 to build their skills in sports activities which are traditionally male sports such as Cricket, Golf, Football, Cycling, Taekwondo, Baseball and Ice Hockey.

This will help girls identify future opportunities and enhance their aspirations beyond traditional gender roles.

The Project will develop interests in coaching and raise aspirations eg currently there are no female cricket umpires in Cardiff at present, coaching is presently promoted as a male only option.

The taster workshops will be over 10 weeks and facilitated by a Sports Coach (female) and accompanied by a Female Sessional Youth Worker.

Trips to matches and events will also take place after the workshops.

Pedal On

10 women attended the 1-1 cycling lessons in partnership with Pedal Power
https://www.cardiffpedalpower.org/ and Welsh Cycling
https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/wales@WelshCycling this week.

Some had never been on a two wheeled bike before and others had never been inside Pontcanna fields before.

These women are getting out in the fresh air, learning to ride a bike, making new friends, exploring new places, being outdoor, practising English and laughing with their friends.

This is a great way of de-stressing and thinking about the future.

Any BAME ladies interested cycling meet @srcdc Mondays at 12.30pm.

Ladies, from Canton, Riverside and Grangetown.

The Believe – Credu project, is supporting BAME ladies, with caring or childcare responsibilities, both to meet up socially and learn new skills.
