Girls Got Goals Kicks Off Season Play!
After spending last semester training under the tutelage of a dedicated coaching staff, our Girls Got Goals participants are ready to hit the pitch!
The 15th season of the Girls Got Goals league is underway for 85 girls from across the city. This year, Willie Brown Middle School will join five other middle schools in league play as both a participant and host site for games along with Everett Middle School.
With women accounting for 70% of team leadership, Girls Got Goals continues its work as a nurturing, uplifting space for young ladies to learn a new sport and develop the social and life skills necessary to become leaders in their community. Aside from regular league matches, Girls Got Goals will also host four workshops throughout the season under the guidance of Jamestown Sports Director Ariel Esqueda.
The workshops build off the program’s youth development framework and touches on subjects such as team building, healthy habits and self confidence. Another addition to this year’s programming will be the End of Season Award Ceremony. Awards will include individual recognitions such as Golden Boot (most goals scored) and honors for Sports(wo)manship and teamwork.
This year is shaping to be memorable one for Girls Got Goals, especially with the Elementary School division kicking off soon! For a full schedule of the Girls Got Goals League, check out the link here.
