National Girls and Women in Sports DayFebruary 3
Join us in recognizing the extraordinary achievements of those who have helped to effect change and create opportunities for women and girls in sports. For 30 years, NGWSD has empowered women and girls to get moving, embrace physical activity and push past their limits both in sports and in life. We know that when girls participate in sports, they develop the leadership skills to excel in school, at home and in their communities. The courage, confidence and character gained through physical activity are the very tools girls need to become the strong leaders of tomorrow.
