Periods are a part of sport.
Let’s talk about them.

It’s time to change the narrative of periods And remove the stigma !

We’re for encouraging open, supportive and informed conversation for everyone in sport. From grassroots to elite, whether you’re an athlete, coach, trainer or fan – whatever your involvement, whatever your experience, you have a place on this team. This is a challenge against the taboo of speaking about periods and a push for education, participation and activation of inclusive period-positive practices across the sport-scape. This is Game changing. Period.
