Sky Blues encourage Women to become active together

A brand new project supporting and celebrating women becoming more active has launched in Coventry! ‘In it Together’ is a 3 year long project funded by Sport England with the support of Coventry City Council to provide fitness and physical activity sessions for local women, with no pressure or costs involved.

The project is delivered by Sky Blues in the Community at 4 local community facilities. At these venues the Sky Blues team are offering a range of fitness and sporting activities to Coventry women completely free of charge that take place on a weekly basis. There are currently 9 different sessions on offer – with some sessions targeted at adult women only and others considering women who have family commitments. All sessions have common ethos – to encourage women to have fun and socialise whilst getting active together!

These sessions take place at: John White Community Centre, Daimler Green Community Centre, St Augustine’s Sport Centre and Tile Hill Wood Community facilities. To find out more about when the sessions take place and what is on offer, simply check out the Sky Blues in the Community website:, ‘Follow’ the project on Twitter: or ‘Like’ the ‘In It Together – Coventry’ Page on Facebook.

As well as offering sessions for adult women in the local Community, the project will also take place in Coventry Secondary Schools. In these schools, teenage girls aged 13-19 will be able to access a free 10 week programme of fun fitness and sporting activities as well as information on a range of health and lifestyle related topics (such and healthy eating and the benefits of regular exercise). Sky Blues in the Community will aim to work with all Coventry Secondary Schools over the next 3 years.

So, if you are a local adult women who is looking to get active, feel good, have fun and make friends then make time for you and be part of something by getting involved in the free In it Together sessions. For further information, please contact Kim Dougherty via Email: or Telephone: 02476 786 314.
