At Girls in the Game, every girl finds her voice, discovers her strength, and leads with confidence through fun and active sports, health, and leadership programs. Since 1995, Girls in the Game has empowered more than 40,000 girls supporting them in forming healthy habits, building their self-confidence, and developing crucial skills that will benefit them now and in the future. Established in Chicago, Girls in the Game has expanded outside of Illinois in recent years, and currently hosts programs in both Baltimore, Maryland and Dallas, Texas.
Girls in the Game’s evidence-based programming is designed to meet the needs of the whole girl by addressing her physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Programming is offered year-round and over the long-term, with the goal of continuously engaging girls from childhood through adolescence, preparing them for a healthy and successful adulthood.
Girls in the Game programming includes After School programs, Game Days, Teen Squad, Sports & Leadership Summer Camp, Summer Squad, Girls’ Triathlon Team, and teen programming at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center. Each program offers participants the opportunity to be physically active, learn about healthy lifestyle choices, and improve their leadership skills in a safe, all-girl setting. With the support of the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, Girls in the Game will provide over 3,500 girls with sports, health and leadership programming this year. Together, we will build the next generation of champions, on and off the field.
