Return to Play

At Girls in the Game, we want all girls to have a chance to play. However, we also want to make sure that playing is safe. In alignment with CDC guidelines, Girls in the Game has drafted our Return to Play Policy outlining all the precautions we will be taking to maintain player, staff, family and community safety for in-person programming.

Fun in the Sun with Girls in the Game is a two-day in-person Chicago summer clinic for 3rd-8th grade girls featuring cardio kickboxing, track and field, yoga, jump rope and emotional health! It will take place on Wednesday, August 26 & Thursday 27th from 10 am-12 pm at the Lions for Hope Sports Complex (2637 W Polk St).

[Virtual] Teen Squad

Teen Squad engages high school girls from across the city to participate in health, sports and leadership workshops with incentives including college scholarships. Teens start the summer off with training from Girls in the Game on how to lead workshops on healthy lifestyles for younger girls. They also participate in Leader to Leader Interviews where they speak with working professionals to learn more about their fields and choose professional development topics to cover as a team. Other activities include fitness challenges, skill-building workshops and other fun all-squad activities. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, all Teen Squad this summer will occur both virtually.
