She's Got Game "Mini" Basketball League
This recreational, low key, 3rd-5th grade league was created to inspire the next generation of girls to play basketball in a positive and healthy way. Through sports, girls learn important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence. However, twice as many girls compared to boys drop out of sports by the age of 14, which can be attributed to societal barriers that are primarily faced by girls. This 5 week league will feature one practice a week, one game a week (no end of season tournament) and a featured word of the week that will build girls’ confidence, prepare them for the challenges of adolescence and teach values like teamwork, respect, and more!
Early Bird Registration Deadline: 3/8/20 ($73)
Final Registration Deadline: 3/15/20 ($83)
