Join the Boys & Girls Club of Newark as we host our first Girl's Fitness Workshop, GirlSport!
The Boys & Girls Club of Newark GirlSport program was created to encourage girls ages 6-18 years old to broaden and strengthen their athletic, nutritional, social and academic skills.
GirlSport participants will take part in diverse athletic activities, and a broad range of discussion groups that focus on topics such as healthy eating and body image.
-To introduce girls to a variety of individual athletic and team sports in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where the girls will be freer to experiment, to fail, to succeed and to question their notions about activities and their bodies
-To provide educational outreach to parents to discuss the importance of girls recreation and the effects of a sedentary life style
-To provide girls with information and tools that can help them safely modify their diets and activity levels
-To provide girls with the skills and knowledge to make lifelong healthy choice
-To empower young girls to take a leadership role by sharing their learned skills in fitness and nutrition to help others
-To build self-esteem, confidence and physical competence in girls
