Classes & Events to empower girls physically, emotionally & socially through physical activity

GAALS teaches girls the fundamental physical skills used in a variety of traditional and non-traditional sports, along with how the valuable life skills learned in athletics can be used to navigate everyday experiences on and off the field.

 Each class pairs one physical skill with one life skill, while integrating activities and discussions that reinforce the importance of communication, teamwork, and problem solving.  By encouraging the girls to express themselves, GAALS creates a comfortable, supportive and fun atmosphere that helps them forge positive relationships with each other, while sparking a desire to be physically active.

 This unique approach lays the foundation for girls to build the character, self-esteem, and confidence needed to lead successful lives.

 GAALS was designed by mothers of girls, along with experts in Psychology, Pediatrics, Education, Exercise Science, Athletic Counseling and Sports Management and is led by female athletes with Master’s Degrees in related fields.
