Swim Ireland Launch #WePlay Online Series

 

Swim Ireland’s #WePlay Inspiring Girls in Sport Conference enters its fourth year in 2020 and in practicing what we have learnt from our #WePlay Speakers in facing adversity, we have adapted to make this year an online series! We are delighted to announce Kinetica as #WePlay 2020 sponsors, with Sport Ireland continuing their support also through the Women in Sport Initiative.

Insightful, inspiring & motivating video’s will be released every Wednesday and Friday across Swim Ireland’s Social media channels, starting April 22nd! Videos will include athlete panel discussions and educational pieces for athletes, coaches, parents and supporters of any age from all sports.

Ireland’s elite athletes from a wide range of sports including Ellen Keane, Phil Healy, Leona Maguire, Sanita Puspure, Katie Mullen, Darragh Greene, Rhys McClenaghan and many more will come together, whilst apart, to share their experiences and advice from their sporting journey so far, including how they are keeping healthy and active during this difficult time. We will also hear from experts such as Sport Ireland Institute’s Head of Performance Nutrition Sharon Madigan.

After each episode of #WePlay Online, YOU have the opportunity to pick the brains of Ireland’s sporting elite! Post your question under our Wednesday video releases and the athletes will answer through a Q&A session every Friday! If you don’t fancy posting publicly, email your question to bethanycarson@swimireland.ie

Speaking about the launch Head of Communications at Swim Ireland Trish Mayon said ‘Thanks to the support of Kinetica and Sport Ireland we are delighted to be delivering the #WePlay stage straight to a screen in your home! The conference has had great engagement in the past and we were keen to deliver in 2020, despite the difficulties we are all facing. We are excited to have Kinetica on board and believe that through the collaboration #WePlay will be a huge success this year.’

Sorcha Madigan, Business President Kinetica said: ‘As an inclusive Irish brand, we are thrilled to be able to support our partners Swim Ireland on the #WePlay women in sport initiative. The online conference series is exactly the type of content that is needed during these uncertain times, to uplift and inspire a broad audience with compelling stories and insightful advice from female athletes who have experienced and overcome so much.’
