Her Sport is a digital media platform giving young girls and women a voice in sport. We aim to empower women in sport at all levels by increasing visibility and highlighting the disparity in sport. We are committed to levelling the playing field for girls and women in sport, by increasing opportunity, support and coverage.
With plans and programmes turned upside down, Her Sport wants to give Transition Year students the opportunity to get involved in making a difference, to become part of a legacy and to make real change for women in sport.
Her Sport have designed an exciting national Transition Year initiative for Transition Year students to participate in a campaign to get real commitment and create change for women in sport, as well as developing valuable life skills. The programme gives students the opportunity to get involved in the following:
Journalism & Video:
While females are currently under-represented in sports journalism, there are growing opportunities for more women to be involved. Get creative and develop your journalistic and/or videography skills by showcasing a female sports star or displaying what sport means to you. The top submissions will feature on the Her Sport platforms! Find out more and how you can enter in the information pack below!
Health & Nutrition for Sport
Advance your understanding of the importance of diet and nutrition by creating a meal plan for an athlete of your choice. Cook one of these meals and have it featured on Her Sport! Find out more and how you can enter in the information pack below!

Become part of the legacy, as we create real commitment across Ireland. Each ‘commitment’ you secure is step forward for women’s sport as we increase the visibility and create a cultural shift. Find out more and how you can enter in the information pack below!
