Staying active daily should be a part of our everyday routine and making sure our youth stay active is just as important. When it comes to our youth today staying active can be difficult due to COVID-19 and remote learning where the daily activity of gym class is no longer in effect and parks and recreation is closed off.

Although this time is challenging I am happy to see local organizations finding safe and creative ways to keep our youth active, in particular keeping our girls active. One specific organization happens to be the G.I.R.L.S Sports Foundation, Inc.

The G.I.R.L.S. Sports Foundation, Inc.'s mission is to promote the importance of academic achievement, respect, self-confidence, healthy lifestyles, teamwork, and good sportsmanship through sports participation and mentoring among underserved girls ages 8 -18.

Founded in 2007, the G.I.R.L.S. Sports Foundation, Inc. (GSF) serves underprivileged girls ages 8 to 18 from some of the most poverty-stricken communities in the City of Buffalo. The name of the organization itself not only represents the community we serve but also the values we hope to instill in them; Goals, Integrity, Respect, Leadership, Sports (G.I.R.L.S.). Our goal is to create successful and well-rounded individuals through a variety of activities ranging from sports clinics and educational workshops to field trips and mentoring sessions. ~ G.I.R.L.S. Sports Foundation

On November 21, 2020, GSF will be hosting their girl's flag football clinic this month on the 21st from 10:30-1:00 at Lane-Weber Park. You can register your child by using this link (https://forms.gle/twzuJTA5oNZ2sHDa6) or by scanning the QR code below with your phone. There will be giveaways and Covid-19 protocols.
