The UKCA & This Girl Can

The UK Cheerleading Association is proud to announce that we are an Official partner of, This Girl Can. As Cheerleading is a predominantly female sport, we are incredibly excited to be part of this female campaign. The UKCA brings 200,000 girls to the programme, who are already involved with many sports covered by This Girl Can.

The This Girl Can project developed by Sport England, supports female exercise and sporting activities, praising women for their participation, no matter their appearance when doing so. This is an important issue which needs to be addressed as, “Fear of judgement is stopping many of us from taking part in exercise. But as thousands of women up and down the country are proving, it really doesn’t have to” – This Girl Can.


This Girl Can aims to get women feeling inspired about their involvement in sport & the empowering message presented by This Girl Can is also echoed within The UKCA. “This Girl Can is here to inspire women to wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome.” Modern society and popular culture dictate that women must look their best at all times, but This Girl Can challenges these topics, bringing the issue into mainstream debate.

On their website you can, “Meet the stars of our campaign who are doing what they do, and letting nothing (not even sweat) stand in their way.” Using the hashtag #ThisGirlCan connect with them via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine, YouTube, Google+.

We are proud of you!
