Topics like body image, bullying, friendships, puberty, “what is cool”, habits and behaviours emerge during the tween years. Often, girls do not feel prepared to cope with these topics, and this may lead to poor decisions in their teens. When girls don’t feel prepared, they are more likely to lack confidence and self-esteem.
This week we chatted with Coach Danielle of Trail, BC!
1. What is your power word?
I have a power phrase which is Stay Wild. This phrase reminds me to stay true to myself, my heart and my soul, and 100% authentic. It reminds me to drown out societies standards and guidelines and live completely free. There is also power, courage, resilience and strength in the wild which I know I can full possess as well.
2. How did you start running?
I started being active at a very young age. Always playing baseball, basketball, volleyball or gymnastics. If there is a sport out there, team or individual, I have probably tried it! But there is something so freeing about running! And I am so excited to help my new team reach their personal goals!
3. What is your happy pace like?
My happy pace is right on the edge of comfort and pain! Steady enough to enjoy it but hard enough to push myself farther each time and reach my goals!
This week we are featuring Sole Coach Aimee of South Surrey, BC!
1. A little bit about yourself:
I am an air traffic controller, mother of two girls and amateur yogi.
2. What is your POWER WORD?
My power word is INCLUSIVE – no one should be left out, it’s more fun together!
3. How did you start running?
I started running when I was a kid in sports like soccer, softball and basketball. Then as I got older and the teams and sport were no longer there, the running was the part that remained.
4. What is your happy pace like?
My happy pace usually depends on what music I’m listening to or who I’m running with as both inspire different moods and speeds!
Spring Break is here and what an awesome time to reconnect with our families and regroup after such a cold winter!

This week Sole Girls went to Australia and hosted our first official LeadHERship Training in New South Wales, Australia!! Check out what Joelle had to say about her LeadHERship Training experience:
"I have just spent a weekend with Ashley on LeadHERship Training. This weekend was valuable for any person working with young people. She was able to help us switch off our ‘adult brain’ and tune into our younger self for a little reminder of what it’s like to be a tween. This reminder was not only a little jog down memory lane, but an opportunity to identify what it is like to be a tween today.
