History of National Girls and Women in Sports Day
In 2020, we will celebrate the 34th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day. In celebration, thousands of sports educators, coaches, athletic directors, recreation directors, association members, sponsors, students, and parents across the country will show their support.

Play, believe, achieve! The Fitness, Wellness, and Recreation Department is making an effort to get as many girls active as possible. No skills are required and all levels are encouraged to participate. Registration will open at 8:00 a.m. on Jan. 6.
The registration fee is $10 per participant, which includes a t-shirt and water bottle for the first 220 girls who register. Scholarships are available and ability adaptations will be made as needed for any of the scheduled sports/activities.
You will be placed in sessions based on your activity preferences and session availability. Every effort will be made to accommodate your top 3 choices, however, placement cannot be guaranteed in any activity and you may get your 4th–6th choices. Some activities are not able to accommodate as many participants as others and will fill up quickly. Register early to help improve your chances of being placed in your preferred activities.
Due to the number of participants, it is not possible to notify everyone ahead of time which activities they received. Please do not ask to switch activities on the day of the event.
Requests to be in the same group as another participant will be considered if they sign up for the same activities. No requests are guaranteed.
