School Year Programs
A Message from Our Executive Director
Out of an abundance of caution and based on recommendations, Girls in the Game is hereby suspending programs and activities at all locations through April 20. This includes all in-school and after school programs as well as all planned Spring Break programs. We will continue to monitor information and recommendations from the various local, state and federal agencies. This suspension may be extended at a later date.
This decision was not made lightly and was made with the best interests of our staff, coaches, participants and school partners in mind. We greatly appreciate our program partners, and are saddened by the impact this pandemic is having on communities and youth programs. We remain committed to providing all of our participants with opportunities to grow into strong, confident leaders, and our staff will be working on ways to provide participants with opportunities for virtual involvement throughout the suspension of in-person programming.
Please do not hesitate to reach out of you have any questions. We have also compiled a list of resources for girls to stay active and healthy during this break. Please check them out and share with anyone who may need them!
After School Programs
We offer after school programs for elementary and middle school girls to give them the confidence they
need to develop into strong women.
Girls face so many challenges, from social media pressure and violence to bullying and staying healthy. At Girls in the Game After School programs, we provide a safe, positive, all-girl space where girls can be themselves. We use health education and leadership development activities to help girls build the skills they need to lead confident, happy lives. Once a week, girls meet after school to participate in a 90-minute sports, health and leadership program tailored to their needs.
As girls get into middle school, coaches emphasize leadership and teamwork by making girls a vital part of the planning process. Girls learn how to peer-lead and coach elementary school programs under the supervision of their Girls in the Game coaches, as well as participate in a Leader to Leader interviews where they interview a leader in their community or school.
Alongside their teammates and coaches, girls learn, grow and play together, building that vital confidence they need to face life’s challenges.
