Girls In Sport

Our mission is to give girls the tools and support needed to achieve a high level in their sport.The majority of girls only access information from their current PE staff, or if they fortunate enough to have been selected for a national side, they may gain information only on limited topics. We will offer information covering all aspects of sport, the mindset, the fitness skills, wellness skills, self management skills, visualisation and confidence.  Teenage sports girls also are unlikely to be surrounded by other like minded individuals who have to make the same sacrifices. By surrounded themselves with a community of sports women they are more likely to succeed.

We want girls to realise the benefits of being committed to sport in their success in all other areas of their life. Many organisations seek out elite sports people when hiring as they believe in the unique skill set of a sports person. Many of the successful business people today have also come from a sports background. A sporting mindset can be the catalyst for an incredible future for todays girls. A sporting mindset will also help them overcome more of life’s hurdles that they will inevitably come across going through life.

Laura Warren has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the sports world and Business Industry and has created a number of offerings available for girls in sports to help them unlock their true potential in the sports world and the world in general.

Lauras Mission

As the founder of laurawarren.com Lauras  mission  is to help girls with potential in sport to stay in sport and achieve all that is out there for them once they are shown the possibilities.

There are two types of sports girls.

Firstly there are girls that have incredible skills and talent but lack self belief or support.  They are surrounded by obstacles and barriers all the time and often believe they aren’t good enough or jealous of others succeeding.

Secondly there are those that may have great confidence but don’t fully know the opportunities out there for them with the skills they have picked up through participating in sport.

Laura will provide the right tools and knowledge to unlock their true potential using a combination of practical and theory technique.

Why it will make a difference

By working with Laura and her team girls will be given tools to develop into whatever they aspire to be.

Testimonials

Iona Dryden
Laura came to present at our annual Sports Awards, giving the most inspiring speech to the girls. She covered challenges of rising to elite level and how she overcame these. The girls were in awe, and came away motivated to set their own goals and strive to achieve them. Laura later came back to coach at our School pre-season as a guest coach. She was passionate in her mission to spread her love for sport in general and lacrosse to our students. Her incredible depth of experience, from time spent playing on the American Collegiate circuit and Internationally is second to none and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet Laura and gain some of her wisdom!

Lucy Fowler
Laura is the ultimate role model for young women in sport. She is extremely driven and determined, an essential attribute for those wanting to reach elite level sport. Laura runs several of her own businesses, is a mother to two lovely boys and has played for the Wales Lacrosse team at 4 world cups…and counting! Her enthusiasm and passion for sport is infectious, and it is this that inspired me to pursue an international career myself. Her combined level of knowledge of lacrosse, approachability and friendly nature motivates her teammates, clients and students alike to work hard, improve and be the best they can possibly be.
