Team Spirit: Aboriginal Girls in Sport and Aboriginal On the Move are national, multi-year projects to increase community sport opportunities for Aboriginal girls and young women (ages 9-18). In 2010/2011, nine communities in six provinces will receive funding to develop and implement community sport and healthy living programs for Aboriginal girls and young women, increase their capacity to address the needs and interests of this target group, and raise the profile of female Aboriginal leaders and role models. The projects will also leverage funding to support action in other communities through knowledge generation, communication, and evaluation.
