After School Programs
We offer after school programs for elementary and middle school girls to give them the confidence they
need to develop into strong women.
Girls face so many challenges, from social media pressure and violence to bullying and staying healthy. At Girls in the Game After School programs, we provide a safe, positive, all-girl space where girls can be themselves. We use health education and leadership development activities to help girls build the skills they need to lead confident, happy lives. Once a week, girls meet after school to participate in a 90-minute sports, health and leadership program tailored to their needs.
As girls get into middle school, coaches emphasize leadership and teamwork by making girls a vital part of the planning process. Girls learn how to peer-lead and coach elementary school programs under the supervision of their Girls in the Game coaches, as well as participate in a Leader to Leader interviews where they interview a leader in their community or school.
Alongside their teammates and coaches, girls learn, grow and play together, building that vital confidence they need to face life’s challenges.
