Exercise for Women and Sport for Girls in Wales

Our Squad is a Sport Wales initiative aimed at inspiring, empowering and encouraging more women and girls in Wales to get active and give sport a go.

It doesn’t matter about your current fitness level, sporting ability or chosen activity, we just want you to get involved and have fun doing it.

We Welsh are known for being a friendly bunch and we know there’s a network of friendly females out there who only want to encourage each other to achieve the very best – whatever that may be.

There’s even a network of supportive males, also up for the challenge to inspire and empower their other halves, mums, sisters, daughters, nieces and gal pals. We want to grow this community and the army of support available to women and girls who want to get more active, try something new or venture into sport for the first time.

So, join us. Be a part of #OurSquad. Share your stories and celebrate the achievements of women and girls across the nation giving it a go.

Another fantastic round of Topaz last Saturday! We visited the Hertfordshire Tornadoes for some training drills and a scrimmage. Once again learning so much from a Division 1 Sevens team and coming away with a lot to reflect upon. With vets new to the sevens scrimmage, and rookies new to the sport overall!, we are very proud ♥ So looking forward to the games in Sapphire Series. Thanks again to the Tornadoes for hosting us 🙆 Hell of a team #OurSquad #Cardiff #Welsh #CardiffValkyries #RideOfTheValkyries #fitness #excited #Topaz #BAFA #gridirongirls #americanfootball #americanfootballuk

Kinda glad to see a another side to racing yesterday. Had a shoddy first run. Waiting for run 2 and notice tire is leaking air, valve wasn't on properly, in a stressy mess you faff about and then think it's all sorted.... Your number's being called so in the sheer panic you pedal off for run 2, Huck it onto the fire road, land like a ton of bricks, shins on pedals.... Realise that in all that you'd somehow locked your forks out 😂😂🤔, knowing you've already totally screwed up... Carry on, hear that noise... look down and your tyre's flat again..... And frankly just jump off the bike and give up. Buuut I'm still hungry for more 😂. On the plus side it was an epic weekend with @girl_in_the_pearls and @amidh30. So privileged to race against some amazing girls. #ukmtb #imbikemag #mtbchixtrails #vitus #melonoptics #mtbwomen @flareclothingco #mtblife #dh #oursquad #vitusbikes

I think this was my favourite roller derby game ever. 😍😍😍😭😭😭💚💚💚 #Repost @riotcityravens (@get_repost) ・・・ Well heck. This just happened. Our very own @jenkillnhide_7 and @angel_gabrihell have done club and country proud playing for @walesrollerderby vs. @usarollerderby. JenKill scored 14 points in the 20th jam and the crowd. Went. Wild. Angel's beautiful blocking had us swooning (especially when she recycled the incredible Bonnie Thunders, not once, but twice)! Da iawn Team Wales, the most heroic of underdogs. We salute you! #followthefire #cymruambyth 💚❤️💚 . . . . . #rollerderby #worldcup2018 #manchester #rollerderbyworldcup #RDWC2018 #riotcityravens #riotriotriot #rollerderbyuk #Newport #Casnewydd #Wales #Cymru #womeninsport #ravens #thisgirlcan #sportwales #OurSquad #sgwadni #calmyourtits #eatsleepriotrepeat

💕When they smile 💕 . I can’t begin to tell you how much I love training @hey_mumma and how much I admire her. . A yummy mummy of three beautiful children, a teacher and she still makes time to train. She always pushes herself to the limits and always has a smile on her face whilst doing so. . Life can be tough enough and for mums a little harder to try and find time for themselves with baby in toe. I don’t know a bond with a child like a mother but what I do know is the love because I get to watch it everyday with my ladies and their little ones and it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. . Ladies please never apologise when your child cries, never apologise when they are being a little mischievous because it’s life it’s what they do and I honestly don’t mind and neither do any of the other ladies in class if anything you will get all the support you need. . We are a team, a squad of women who bring each other up not tare each other down. . #oursquad #personaltrainer #coach #exercise #fit #fitness #workout #mum #kids #live #love #life #smile #nevergiveup #getfit #jinfit #penarth #cardiff #motivation #determination #inspiration #womenshealth #womensfitness

Very proud of the team for facing another Division 1 team at the 7s level. The amount of learning we do is unlimited. Played linebacker and D-line through the day and pretty proud of myself too. Do not game day then train the next day with a bust up leg and arm though. That's the most important thing I learnt 💁 Exciting how the team will develop by Sapphire. For myself I'll be stronger, faster, have a better understanding, making calls on the field. The last few weeks have been so hard but I'm glad I stuck it through and stayed healthy and with Football. It's going to be so worth it. Excited #linebacker #americanfootball #lineman #americanfootballuk #Boom #oursquad #gridirongirls #cardiffvalkyries #rideofthevalkyries #gettingready #ISeeYou👀
