PROGRAMS

Girls Play Sports offers 5 programs throughout the year for girls grades 4-8.

GPS’s multi-sport programming exposes girls to sports they have never tried while also engaging them in meaningful conversations about important topics that affect young women today. We want our girls to be the leaders of tomorrow.

GPS was created to unlock doors, to expose girls to positive, strong role models and to let girls just have fun without a scoreboard or a long-term commitment. GPS was created to help girls fully and effectively navigate their own future!
