Active and Empowered

Active and Empowered

30 March 2022

Evidence shows that fathers who are actively engaged with their daughters create positive physical and mental health outcomes including higher levels of self-esteem, resilience, and physical wellbeing. 

Fathers also have a critical role in helping their daughters form a healthy view of their body, which is important given that self esteem and body image are major concerns facing girls, particularly in teenage years.

Daughters and Dads Active and Empowered is a worldfirst, research-led program to get fathers involved in their daughters’ physical activity levels, sport skills and social-emotional wellbeing. Newly opened Le Ray Gymnastics in Birchgrove is one of just five gymnastics clubs in NSW to be selected to participate in the program.

“We feel very privileged to be selected for this amazing opportunity” says Dani Le Ray, local mum and owner of Le Ray Gymnastics.

“It’s wonderful when dads get involved and this program is the perfect opportunity to do so.”
