The Women’s Rugby Forum aims to help female players improve their skills and develop their leadership abilities, according to a new project launched this month.
The program, called Kayaks Women’s Forum, is a collaborative effort between the United States Women’s National Rugby Team, USA Rugby and the Kayaks Sports & Leisure Group.
Kayaks is a privately held company with more than 60 employees in the United Kingdom and a headquarters in California.
The organization says it will help to increase the number of women playing sports in the U.S. and around the world.
The Kayaks site says its goal is to bring women together for a fun and inclusive community where everyone can enjoy their sports.
The project will focus on developing the “Kayaks Team” of women who have experience playing sport, said Julie Lacey, president and CEO of Kayaks.
“We want to give them a platform to share their experience, and build a community of like-minded people who share their passion for sports.”
Kayaks has partnered with the U-17 Women’s Olympic Rugby Team to help women with their development.
“Kayakes is the perfect platform for our sport and our women’s sport in particular,” USA Rugby spokeswoman Natalie Brown said in a statement.
“Having more women involved in sport is important, and we’re excited to see the positive effects of Kayakes’s leadership platform in helping more women get to the Olympics.”
USA Rugby hopes to launch its own female-led women’s team in the 2020 Olympics, with the USA Women’s U-19 Women’s team competing in London, England, in 2021.
USA Rugby said the project will include mentoring, coaching and training of the team and providing “expert advice and coaching on the sport and its benefits.”
Kayakes was founded in 1997.
The website, which was launched in April, says it’s focused on building the Kayakes Team of women to take on more challenging roles and responsibilities in the sport, such as coaching, development and training.
“Our goal is for our members to be the best they can be in the best way, with a purpose and purposeful focus on becoming the best that they can possibly be,” the website reads.
USA Women are scheduled to start playing at the 2017 Under-20 World Cup in Canada in March.
USA Soccer and Kayaks USA said in an email that they will also launch a Women’s Academy, a program that will allow women to participate in leadership development.
The academy will offer “interactive coaching sessions,” as well as “leadership and leadership workshops” to young women, USA Soccer said.
USA Men’s and USA Women Soccer have both created programs focused on developing and developing youth players.
USA men’s development director Greg Clark said the USA Men and Women have developed the program “to give girls the skills to be leaders and role models for future women.”
“It’s not only for our current program, but to give our young women a platform and to develop as individuals,” Clark said.
