It’s no surprise to you that girls that play sports have better-standardized test results than non-athletes. Or that female athletes go on to earn 7% higher annual wages than their non-athlete peers. And sports also help boost self-esteem. So it’s about time that we step up to the plate and encourage girls to kick, run, shoot, and PLAY LIKE A GIRL!!
On Sunday, May 15, 2022, the Piedmont Recreation Department will be hosting the Play Like a Girl+ Piedmont event at Witter Field from 10 am – 1 pm. This free event is aimed at getting girls ages 2-18 pumped to play sports in a fun and supportive environment. Girls from around the Bay Area will be in attendance and we expect this event to be a huge hit. Along with the Piedmont Unified School District, organizations from Piedmont, Oakland, Berkeley and beyond will be offering approximately 20 different sports for girls to try out. Also, at this year’s event, there will be music, demonstrations, and fabulous raffle prizes!
Save the date – registration opens on April 15, 2022.
