Girls Active takes place on a Wednesday afternoon in the centre. Girls Active is a joint programme between the Health Services Executive North West, Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership, Youth Sport West and is aimed at teenage girls who are not currently participating in sport. The programme was initiated in 2003 and aims to increase the number of teenage girls involved in long-term regular physical activity through developing more supportive environments for teenage girls’ physical activity.
The programme involves extra curricular physical activities for teenage girls which are:
- Recreational and Non Competitive
- Girls only
- Activities selected by the Girls
- Activities organised by the Girls
- At least 3 different activities throughout the year
