About Leeds Girls Can
Leeds Girls Can is part of the national This Girl Can campaign developed by Sport England together with a range of partners to encourage women to take part in sport.
They want the women of Leeds to run, roll, move, pedal, swim and shoot for the netball hoop. If you want to try a new sport or get back into a sport that you previously loved now is the time!
