Salve Regina hosts free sports clinic for girls in grades 2-6 on Friday, Feb. 6

The community is invited to bring their daughters to the Rodgers Recreation Center on Friday, Feb. 6 for the Salve Regina University’s seventh annual free multi-sport clinic for girls in grades 2-6, which is being held in celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

Student-athletes from many of Salve Regina’s women’s athletic teams will be on hand to demonstrate techniques and fundamentals of their respective sports to those in attendance.

The clinic begins at 6:30 p.m., and pizza will be served at 8 p.m. Participants may register on site beginning at 5:45 p.m. or complete the downloadable form and bring it with them on Feb. 6.

Since its inception in 1987, National Girls and Women in Sports Day has become the premiere occasion to celebrate the participation, success and accomplishments of girls and women athletes. What started in 1987 as a single event in Washington, D.C. to honor Olympic volleyball star Flo Hyman has grown into a nationwide celebration across all 50 states.
