The Hijabi Ballers project, based in the Greater Toronto Area, seeks to recognize and celebrate the athleticism of Muslim girls and women. Through our programs, we also work to increase representation, and consequently participation, of Muslim females in sport spaces and sports programs around the city. What are challenges do athletes from different backgrounds and religions face in Canadian sport? What support is needed? And how can this organization serve as a template for inclusivity in sport? Bring your questions on inclusion in sport and get answers!
Participants receive 1 NCCP PD Point
Amreen Kadwa, 22, is the founder of Hijabi Ballers. She loves playing sports and staying active. Her primary involvement is with rugby, having played with her high school, Victoria Park CI and a summer club, Yeomen Lions RFC, in the last 7 years in Toronto. Amreen believes that wearing a hijab while playing sports has given her adversity, confidence and strength on and off the field. For many women, wearing modest clothing along with a headscarf while taking part in sports is a physical and social challenge to overcome and those that dominate this experience deserve recognition. Along with this recognition, emerge, role models, that younger Muslim women who want to pursue athletics need: someone to look up to, someone they can see challenging traditional viewpoints while representing their faith.
