“Girls’ engagement with physical activity, from our most affluent to our most underserved communities, is about so much more than who can run the fastest, jump the highest, or score the most points. It is about seeing and living physical activity as a vehicle for educational opportunity, a path to health and wellness, and a prescription for ensuring that every girl reaches her full potential.”
Developing Physically Active Girls, Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, University of Minnesota, 2007
