The Miss Fits programme is our girls specific programme of activities. Movement Evolution Scotland aims to encourage everybody to find physical activities that they enjoy, to develop competence and confidence in movement skills, and ultimately take part in regular physical activity to benefit both their physical and mental health.
It is well documented that there is a significant drop out of girls from sports in the UK, in fact Women in Sport 2021 research shows that 1 in 3 girls drop out of sports during puberty. The same research showed more than half of teenage girls admit they do not play sport at all. Girls say they dropped out of sports for several reasons, 29% of girls aged 14-16 say not being good at sport stops them from taking part in school sport. In addition low self-worth and a predetermined sense of failure left 50% of girls feel paralysed by their fear of failure at puberty stopping them trying new things.

All Miss Fits activities aim to break down barriers to participation in females in Primary 7 and older, and provide encouragement, enthusiasm and support for all regardless of ability.
