MoJoManuals - Inner Strength - Outer Confidence in teenage girls
The Women’s Sports Network has just launched a series of manuals to help teenage girls starting out in competitive sport to develop greater body confidence in parallel with sport-related skills. Targeted at clubs, coaches, schools and parents - and girls themselves – MoJoManuals are predicated on 'Physical Literacy' but also cover a range of other issues which impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport.
MoJoManuals are about 'Physical Literacy' - stable, confident movement around sport and in life. They also cover a range of other emotive issues such as: body image, diet, breast health, fit or thin, social media, training with menstruation, coach attitude etc. – which often impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport. We produced our first ROWMoJo end of last year and are now working on FOOTBALLMoJo CRICKETMoJo and LACROSSEMoJo – the story continues as we start to develop editions such as ‘MaMaMoJo’ etc.
Not just Physical Literacy
In addition to Physical Literacy' MoJoManuals cover, diet, anxiety, menstruation, breast health & sports bras, sleep/rest, re-hydration, body image and social media. We are working with a number of expert contributors to develop central areas of this range of manual's.

These manuals designed to help at schools, clubs, coaches parents - as well as the girls themselves. They are written such that the athletes can read at one level and adults at another - offering opportunity for discussion and development.
Workshops - WSNet runs workshops for staff, pupils and PTAs on the MoJo methods - the ethos behind MoJoManuals - how they can help sport and also how to overcome 'fear of judngment', learning to fail better and take those siklls into everyday life.
