Girls of all fitness levels age 8-18 are invited to a 3-4 hour event, called a Fast and Female Champ Chat where they will be inspired by Olympians, Paralympians, and elite female athletes to stay active in sports and have fun!
Girls are placed in age appropriate groups with an Ambassador to enjoy high quality face-to-face time with their female role model (approximately 1 ambassador for every 8 girls).
There are three parts to the event:
Circuit of exercises suitable for all backgrounds to develop physical literacy
Inspirational chat with athlete ambassadors
Yoga/Dance party. Blast the music, celebrate and feel awesome
To create an inclusive team atmosphere, each girl receives a Fast and Female t-shirt to match their Ambassador’s t-shirt.
Our incredible team of Fast and Female Ambassadors are role models to girls around the world. Over 250 Olympians, Paralympians, elite athletes, and sport experts volunteer their time every year to attend Champ Chats across the country.
They share stories of their athletic journey, lead their favourite fitness station, and have fun with the girls.
Their #1 goal is to inspire the next generation of female athletes by sharing their love of sports.

We are committed to keeping girls healthy, happy, and active in sports through their teens and are delivering Champ Chats on an event-by-event basis that gives each event the opportunity to have its own Presenting Partner. In 2018, each Champ Chat will need a Corporate Partner. If you’re interested in taking the next steps to get involved, please fill out the Champ Chat request form.
We require 3 months of planning time to ensure that each Champ Chat is as successful as possible. Event planning begins when we process partnership agreements and our standard timeline is that the Champ Chat will take place no less than 3 months after the presenting partner has been confirmed. Our Event Coordinators need that time to get a great venue, work with ambassadors to confirm their schedules, plan an EPIC day of empowering programming and fun, and of course, to promote the event by engaging with various community groups and teams. Our goal is quality. We want to make sure that every Champ Chat is impactful and excellent!
**We’ve been known to hustle extra hard to deliver events in shorter timelines, so if you have a VERY compelling case, we’re all ears**
Our Ambassadors generously volunteer their time and we are very understanding of their busy training and competition schedules (that’s why they’re so inspirational, right!?!). We are not able to guarantee that an Olympic or Paralympic Ambassador will be available to attend, but if you have an Ambassador in mind that you’d like to engage, we’re happy to try to make that work when we begin planning your event. While we agree that Olympians and Paralympians are SUPER inspirational, we also know that the biggest impact an Ambassador can have is a personal connection with a participant – this is how we change lives. We believe that stories of resilience, goal-setting, overcoming obstacles, and reaching for big dreams are inspirational no matter which Ambassador is telling them!
We LOVE that Fast and Female is across North America in Canada and the USA! This Champ Chat model applies only to Canadian events, but if you’re interested in learning more about Fast and Female in the USA, check outthis page!
