Return to Play
At Girls in the Game, we want all girls to have a chance to play. However, we also want to make sure that playing is safe. In alignment with CDC guidelines, Girls in the Game has drafted our Return to Play Policy outlining all the precautions we will be taking to maintain player, staff, family and community safety for in-person programming.
2021 Summer Programs
Thank you for your interest in summer programs!
Girls in the Game is in the process of planning for a fun, safe summer in 2021! We anticipate returning to some form of in-person programs for elementary and middle school girls this July, and are working to get the details to girls and their families as quickly as possible.
If you would like to register to receive announcements regarding Summer 2021 programs, please submit your information so that we can reach out with additional details once we know more.
Summer Game Days
Girls in the Game brings unique, all-girl programs to your school, park or other location through a Game Day. These one-time events provide a snapshot of what Girls in the Game is all about–bringing girls together to get them excited about health and physical activity. Elementary and middle school girls participate in two to three hours of sports and fitness activities as well as interactive workshops on health, leadership and life skills.
Our Game Day programs can serve between 30-150 elementary or middle school girls during or after school. We provide the coaching staff and the necessary equipment for your girls, all at no cost. If you’re interested in seeing if Girls in the Game is a good fit or you have girls who are ready to get in the game, we would love to bring a Game Day to you! As we return to in-person programs, we are offering socially distanced Game Days where participants can engage in in-person activities that still keep them a safe distance from their peers.
[Virtual] Teen Squad
Teen Squad engages high school girls from across the city to participate in health, sports and leadership workshops with incentives including college scholarships. Teens start with training from Girls in the Game on how to lead workshops on healthy lifestyles for younger girls. They also participate in Leader to Leader Interviews where they speak with working professionals to learn more about their fields and choose professional development topics to cover as a team. Other activities include fitness challenges, skill-building workshops and other fun all-squad activities. Due to COVID-19, all Teen Squad programs are currently taking place virtually; we are evaluating the options for 2021 summer programs.
