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 sport/activities.
When you register you will choose 3 activities for each session. You will be asked to list the activities in the order of your 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 or 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 Dore 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. Campus Map
Please arrive at 2 pm 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. Those two activities filled up fast so there is no guarantee your daughter received her first choice.
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, the same for their third activity. After the third activity they will find their age to pick up their certificate and get their snacks. Please be here by 5:30 pm to pick up your child.
