TEAM SPORTS BUILD MORE THAN TEAMS
We wanted to dig a little deeper into the need for serious support. So as part of our new campaign, we spoke to women all over Ireland about playing sport and how it helps them build important life skills. We conducted nationwide research as well as making a documentary and lots of interesting findings emerged. Watch our documentary and benefits of team sport series to find out more about our serious support and the reasons why our support is so vital.
