GAALS helps girls build the fundamental physical skills used in a variety of traditional and non-traditional sports, as well as the confidence needed in every aspect of their lives. Each class focuses on one physical skill and one life skill, and integrates team-building activities and discussions about how these skills can be applied in their everyday environment.
By creating a comfortable, supportive and fun atmosphere that encourages girls to listen, communicate clearly and express themselves, GAALS facilitates the development of relationships on and off the field, and boosts each girl’s self-esteem while forming a positive relationship with being physically active.
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.
