About the Active Girls Committee

The Active Girls Committee is a pioneering Aberdeen initiative, empowering young girls to increase participation in sport.

The Active Girls Committee, comprised of 15 pupils from nine different schools in Aberdeen is one of the first of its kind in Scotland. The initiative has been facilitated by Active Schools Aberdeen, part of registered charity Sport Aberdeen.

The girls have pledged to work together to get more girls active across city, and signed the Book of Agreement which they created for the Committee to follow in this pursuit.

Figures reported by Active Schools both nationally and locally in Aberdeen have shown that the level of girls’ participation in extracurricular sport tends to drop over the course of their time at secondary school.
