Mission Statement

Girls Play Sports is dedicated to fostering leadership skills and confidence in girls through their participation in a wide variety of sports.

Description

Girls Play Sports is on a mission to teach a wide variety of sports to pre-teens and teens through our three-tiered approach:

  1. Fourth and Fifth grade girls are introduced to a multitude of sports through a series of free After School Clinics throughout the school year at their respective schools and the GPS Festival at their local high school.
  2. Middle school girls gain deeper instruction in up to sixteen different sports throughout the school year from varsity high school athletes from their community through the Team GPS program and they also have the opportunity to compete in leagues and tournaments in sports that are usually not offered until high school.
  3. High school athletes gain leadership and coaching skills while they introduce their sports to younger girls and teach them the skills, strategies and techniques. They also help facilitate discussions about the importance of sports as well as other meaningful topics for girls.
