WSI was formed to meet the challenge of ensuring that sport and physical activity receive the attention and priority they deserve in the lives of girls and women and to meet the need for an international umbrella organization that can bring about positive change for girls and women in these important areas of their lives.
WSI is both an issues and action based organization. Our members represent over 30 countries and a broad range of expertise and interest in the following areas: sports science medicine, health and fitness, nutrition, coaching, administration and education as well as athletes and girls and women who want the opportunity to make sport and physical activity an ongoing part of their lives.
Our mission is to encourage increased opportunities and positive changes for women and girls at all levels of involvement in sport and physical activity.
