Since Little League launched it's Little League® Girls with Game Initiative in 2019 it has been dedicated to honouring all the girls and women who have made the Little League program what it is today and those who inspire the future generation of female participants at every level. From written stories and feature videos to inspiring quotes and photos across all its digital media platforms, the Girls with Game initiative celebrates the memorable moments, exciting events, and inspiring individuals throughout the Little League Baseball and Softball program all year long. Each March, in coordination with National Women’s History Month, Little League celebrates its own women’s history with Girls with Game Month across all its social media channels and at LittleLeague.org/GirlsWithGame Intiative
Why should we make the effort in this area? Please take a moment to look at the infographic below provided by Canadian Women and Sport and the reasons become quite apparent. Additionally, if you read this ESPN article, it highlights some of the issues surrounding the low number of women in baseball. So we asked ourselves, how can we best support this and get more women involved in baseball - and it was through getting more girls to play baseball, for a longer period of time. As an association we will be making a more concerted effort to do better in this area.
The big question is how are we going to achieve this? We are working towards some better information for our coaches to understand how coaching girls is different (and more importantly - how they aren't!). And for all the parents of girls - we will be holding a #girlswithgame engagement event where we want your participation and feedback on other ways we can support all the girls, at all age groups.
