We cordially invite all of you to come and join us in this year’s “Girls and Young Women Sports-Party LEYLA IS RUNNING
The idea behind LEYLA IS RUNNING ...
The Girls-Sports-Party LEYLA IS RUNNING
was called to life, to show girls and young women the variety of sports and physical activities that are available also - or especially! - for them. It is designed to show them, how they can participate in all sport, also those considered “not typically female”- sports, like boxing and soccer.
At the site of the party, an outdoor sports field in the heart of Berlin’s city centre, the visitors of LEYLA IS RUNNING
can watch demonstrations of sports-clubs and participate in 15 to 30 minute-long workshops, to find out if the sport suits them. This also gives them the opportunity to get in contact with the trainers, for a first personal connection and to ask for further information about training hours etc.
Furthermore, LEYLA IS RUNNING
offers little performances by girls of Dance- and Activity-Groups, organized by neighbourhood schools and Youth-Clubs. Parallel to these workshops and performances, there is the “GIRL´S OLYMPICS” where the girls can test or prove their agility.
For the participation there are points to be gathered at every station of the “GIRL´S OLYMPICS” and through the participation in the workshops. For every card filled up with points, the girls get a medal at the end of the party and also, the card enters the big tombola-tub. Every year there are many great prices to win, ranging from sports-equipment, like diving goggles, over Pop-CD´s to shopping-vouchers. These gifts are gathered by the girls of the LEYLA IS RUNNING - TEAM
from various sponsors several weeks before the party.
All participants, whether performers or trainers are women or girls! Whether DJane or Red-Cross-Helpers, Moderators, Entrance/Security- all positions and works connected to the LEYLA IS RUNNING
- Sports-Party are filled by women or girls. This is to demonstrate, that sports is not a field “exclusively” dominated by men, as it is perceived frequently, but that girls and women can be active in all parts of the sports-organization, be it in one of the different sports or by taking part in the organizational structures of sports.
Persons who accompany girls, boys and men joining their families, sisters or daughters in visiting the Party are welcome, but can not participate in the workshops and the “GIRLS OLYMPICS”. We kindly ask the teachers and everybody else to not bring groups of boys with them to the party.
How can I participate?
