Who We Are
Every girl finds her voice, discovers her strength and leads with confidence through fun and active sports, health and leadership programs.
Girls in the Game empowers all girls to be gamechangers.
Girls in the Game aims to be a positive, supportive environment when young people are dealing with all issues, including those around gender identity. We welcome all girls, regardless of their gender identity and gender expression. We welcome all those who identify as girls or are exploring their gender identity or expression, regardless of their assigned sex at birth. This applies to both to participants who are already in our program and incoming participants.
This position is driven by our organizational value equity, understanding that equity includes a broad range of gender identities and expressions and includes cisgender girls, transgender girls, nonbinary individuals, etc.
We respect a young person’s wishes to be called by the name and pronoun they choose and ensure that all participants do the same. We will listen and learn in order to ensure we do not make mistaken assumptions based on outward appearance or performance of gender. We will continue to dedicate ourselves to maintaining a safe, welcoming environment for all participants. The success of our organization is rooted in respecting and celebrating one another and supporting each girl’s personal journey.
