The captain of the first women's Afghan national soccer team and recipient of the 2006 Arthur Ashe Courage Award talks about growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan and the challenges facing women and girls in that environment. Kohestani discusses how playing soccer gave her confidence and courage to fight against oppression of women worldwide.



In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

#HerMoJo ♀VIDEO - Whoooosh find you MoJo with a .@PowerhoopUK session

Powerhoopsupports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' toSo you want to get into netball.

Fitness League demonstrates one of their brilliant routines - hoops!

  • Lose inches around your waist while having fun in a Powerhoop group exercise class. Our certified instructors are trained to teach exciting, effective classes that give their members fast results. You can find a class in your area at www.powerhoop.com, or ask your local gym to check out the Powerhoop Instructor Training Course.
  • Fitness experts claim that it's impossible to "spot reduce." Powerhoop is proving them wrong.Powerhooping may be fun, but it's a fitness activity that can be taken seriously. A new study by researchers at Canada’s University of Waterloo Spine Biomechanics Laboratory, one of the world's foremost sports medical research facilities, has now confirmed that regular Powerhooping causes the waist to shrink. The subjects were fourteen mildly overweight women who used a Powerhoop for fifteen minutes per day, five days per week, over a period of six weeks. The researchers collected several types of data, including calories burned, subcutaneous fat measurements, subjects’ body measurements and muscle activation.
  • On average, subjects experienced a significant decrease in waist and hip circumference, and waist‐to‐hip ratio. Average reduction in waist size was 3.35 cm, with three of the fourteen subjects losing between 5 and 7.5 cm around the waist. The hips also shrank, but not as much. (The "hourglass shape" was therefore accentuated.

#HERMoJo ♀ Loop #PINGPONG in the Bar with .@TableTennisENG

11:30 Ping Pong Pubs & Cafes - fun getting ACTIVE

12:30

LOOP Social Table Tennis programme supports #HERMoJo - more women more ACTIVE!

At LOOP, we believe table tennis is ideally suited to cafés, bars and pubs, and similar venues.  The game is as sociable or competitive as the players want it to be and a single table can be enjoyed by up to 20 people at any one time.

There are lots of ping pong pubs and cafés already popping up all over the place.  

♦ Table Tennis is a vital part of pub and café culture and leads a return of pub games

♦ Pub table tennis tables are focal points where friends and strangers meet, laugh and play

♦ New forms of social leagues, ladders and cups thrive across every village, town and city

We’re already working with a number of independent bars, pub chains and breweries to build a thriving pub LOOP culture, where table tennis leads the way.

#NETBALLMoJo VIDEO - BEE Programme #MoJoAFRICA VIA: .@england_netball

12:00 - Under 11? you can BEE Netball

13:00

England Netball supports #HerMoJo with the BEE programme - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!

it’s about how hard you try to Bee!

This is Bee Netball. A programme all about friendship, inclusion, fair play and playing together. It’s not about how good children are, it’s about how hard they try to Bee!

Bee Netball is not just a game, but a framework for children to get a great start in life through learning valuable skills including social, emotional and teamwork, all through netball. We’re excited that you’re interested in becoming part of this and changing and developing the young lives in your community. Bees themselves exemplify many of the values that netball instils; they’re active, hardworking, have a real sense of belonging and that’s exactly what we hope all our very own Bees (the young players!) develop as they are introduced to our great sport! It's not complicated, it’s simply a way to enable children to play the game while learning and developing a whole heap of other important skills.

England Netball aims to combat nationwide wellbeing issues with new U11 programme
 
89% of girls do not meet required level of physical activityin the UK!

England Netball is delighted to announce the launch of its new Bee Netball programme designed exclusively for U11s. Research conducted by Youth Sport Trust shows that a whopping 89% of girls do not meet the required level of physical activity and the Department of Health found that one-third of children in the UK are overweight or obese. In fact, a study funded by the government in 2016 found that children spend 90% less time outside playing than in the 1980s, which is less than those in prison! 

England Netball believes this is having a negative effect on mental health, as on average three children in every classroom have a mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression. Bee Netball, which enables children to participate in netball, make friends and develop other key skills, such as friendship, inclusion, fair play and playing together, has been designed to combat these issues.

The programme will be introduced throughout schools, netball clubs and local communities across the country and will promote self-development, provide stage age-appropriate netball, and inspire children to become part of the netball family.

International – we’re currently working to get NETBALLMoJo translated (into Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili etc.) and digitised. Keen to work with UK NGBs and International Federations to help get the ‘Empowerment through Sport’ message across. Digital editions can be distributed virtually free (e.g. 50 Rupees) and delivered directly, circumventing local (often misogynistic) prejudices – we believe that gives WSNet a unique momentum that can really change the lives of girls in both western and 'third world' countries. If you can help please email paul.r@wsnet.co.uk with your interest.
