The Goucher College Athletics Department, along with Goucher's Title IX Office will be hosting National Girls and Women in Sports Celebration inside the Decker Sports and Recreation Center on-campus on Saturday. Festivities run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The celebration will include free clinics in various sports (basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, volleyball, and tennis). Participants can choose any three sports they want to try, free of charge, as the clinics will be open to girls in 4th through 8th grade.
Parents are reminded that they will need to sign a waiver, which is available here. They are also expected to stay onsite for the duration of the Celebration.
This year marks the 32nd annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day. The 2018 theme is "Play Fair, Play IX."
National Girls and Women in Sports Day is a time to celebrate the extraordinary achievements in girls and women's sports and the positive influence athletic participation brings to their lives. NGWSD recognizes the ongoing effort towards equality and access for women in sports and the nation's commitment to expand sport and participation opportunities for all girls and future generations.
