National Girls & Women in Sports Day and Recreation Clinic


Westminster College celebrates National Girls and Women in Sports Day!

Registration will open on Monday, January 9th.

Online Registration

Westminster College's 9th annual Sports and Recreation Clinic is for all girls ages 6–14.

Registration Fee: $10/participant (includes t-shirt and water bottle for the first 220 girls who register)

Play, believe, achieve! We are making an effort to get as many girls active as possible. Scholarships are available and we will make ability adaptations as needed in any of the scheduled sports/activities.

When you register you will choose 3 activities for each session. You will be asked to list the activities in order of preference to be put in that sport/activity. Every effort will be made to accommodate your top choice in each session; however, we cannot guarantee placement and you may be placed in your second or third choice sport/activity. Some sports/activities are not able to accommodate as many girls as other sports/activities and will fill up fast. Register early to help guarantee preferred placement.

What to expect the day of the event

Check-in and drop-off will be the on the west side of the Dolores Doré Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center. You will want to enter campus from 1700 South and turn south on 1200 East. At the stop sign go straight and park underneath the elevated playing field. You will see the entrance to the Eccles Center on your left as you are driving to the parking garage. View the campus map

Please arrive at 2 p.m. for check-in, which will be done by age. When girls check in they will get two name tags, one for their water bottle and one for their shirt. One of their name tags will have their 3 activities written on them. Due to the number of participants it is not possible to notify everyone ahead of time which activities they received. All activities will be done indoors so tennis shoes and appropriate athletic attire is recommended. If one of your daughter's choices was swimming or kayaking a swim suit and towel is required. These two activities fill up fast so there is no guarantee your daughter will receive her first choices.

After checking in and getting their t-shirts girls will congregate on the main court where they will find the sign for their first activity. Girls will go as a group to their first activity and then be brought back to the fieldhouse as a group to re-organize for their second activity, and the same for their third activity. After the third activity they will find their age category to pick up their certificate and get their snacks. Please be here by 5:30 p.m. to pick up your child.
