Empowering Young Girls through Water Wellbeing and Paddle Board Skills

In the heart of Merseyside, Beautiful New Beginnings, SwimSquad and Liverpool Supco



have been creating ripples of empowerment among young girls through our unique Girls-Only Water Wellbeing and Paddle Board Skills Session. More than just a recreational activity, our project is designed to be a transformative experience that supports the holistic development of girls aged 10 to 17. In this blog post, we will explore how this is positively impacting the lives of young girls across Merseyside.


Fostering Physical Wellbeing: We understand the importance of physical health in overall wellbeing. Our water-based activities, including invigorating paddle boarding sessions, play a crucial role in promoting cardiovascular health, enhancing strength, balance, and coordination. We are dedicated to helping young girls embrace an active lifestyle, breaking away from sedentary habits and enjoying the benefits of regular exercise.


Building Confidence and Self-Esteem: Navigating the waters on a paddleboard requires courage and determination. We create a supportive environment where young girls can challenge themselves in a safe space, fostering a sense of accomplishment that extends beyond the water. Our mission is to build confidence and self-esteem, empowering girls to face challenges with resilience and self-assurance.


Encouraging Teamwork and Friendship: We value the sense of community and camaraderie that arises from group activities. Through our Girls-Only session, participants engage in teamwork, sharing the thrill of paddle boarding and forming lasting friendships. We believe that the bonds formed during our sessions extend beyond the water, providing a supportive network that empowers girls in their everyday lives.


Nurturing Mental Wellbeing: Water has therapeutic qualities, and the pool harnesses this aspect to create a calming and serene environment for our participants. The combination of physical activity, fresh air, and the soothing nature of water contributes to a holistic experience that promotes mental wellbeing. Our goal is to provide a space for girls to disconnect from daily stressors and connect with the tranquility of the water, fostering mental resilience and emotional balance.


Empowering Through Skill Development: We believe in empowering young girls by imparting valuable skills. Learning to paddleboard is not just about acquiring a new skill; it's about proving to oneself that challenges can be overcome with dedication and effort. Our Girls-Only session equips participants with a mindset that they can tackle any challenges that come their way, fostering empowerment that extends far beyond the shores of Merseyside.


Water Wellbeing is more than just a project; it's a transformative journey for young girls.


Our commitment to fostering physical wellbeing, building confidence, encouraging teamwork, nurturing mental health, and empowering through skill development is creating a ripple effect of empowerment, marking the beginning of beautiful new chapters in the lives of young girls.
