Research Focus Group: Motherhood Barriers in Sport
A graduate study through Concordia University of Edmonton is searching for mothers to participate in a focus group to talk about their personal experiences and remaining active in the sport community. We are looking for mothers who are involved in any type of sport, and at any level (recreational or competitive). The focus group will be held April 4th from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the Percy Page Centre. All information and personal stories will remain confidential. Ultimatley, the goal of the study is to create a research article and a resource guide that In-Motion Network can use to help mothers remain active in the sport community. Any participation would be greatly appreciated. If interested, please feel free to contact Jacqueline Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Aliza Dadani at email@example.com

Welcome to InMotion Network
InMotion Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting physical activity for girls and women in Alberta.
Our mission is to inspire and empower girls and women of all abilities in Alberta to participate in sport and physical activity. Girls and women have been underrepresented in the fields, courts, and pools, as well as the locker rooms and board rooms of Alberta. Most of us are familiar with the physical, social, and psychological benefits of physical activity, yet beginning at age twelve, girls' involvement in physical activity declines until only 17% are active by age seventeen (Hay & Donnelly, 1996).
Why Female-Only Programming?
InMotion Network is working towards gender equity in sport and physical activity. This means that girls and women should have access to the same range of physical activities as boys and men, without having to share them. Girls and women are often more willing to participate in physical activity in their own way, without the concerns of extra competition, the fear of injury, the increased self-consciousness, and the frustration of being excluded that are common in co-ed activities.
InMotion Network envisions a future where girls and women have access to a full range of sport and leadership opportunities.
