LEADERSHIP

We invest in our girls on and off the field to find their voice and passion. Our coaches work with our participants at leadership events and conferences to encourage our players to become leaders in careers in math, science, engineering, technology, philanthropy and sports.

 

We inspire our girls to influence the world!

“As a player, instructing the younger girls on what to do and not do helps me in my own game because I am making mental notes to make sure that I am doing those things too. Teaching them the skills helps me too because I relearn them better. As a person it feels good to help people. It has definitely helped me with my leadership skills and has given me more confidence in groups.” - Allison Philips, 11th Grade Student

Intentional Curriculum
Our curriculum has been developed over the years to incorporate lessons of leadership and character into our soccer practices, camps, and events. Additionally we collaborate with other organizations like World Wide Women, the Friends of the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Alliance for Girls to provide opportunities for our girls to attend conferences, workshops, festivals all devoted to the empowerment of women leaders.


Junior Coaching & Mentoring
As part of our mission to train female coaches and provide female role models for our players, the Junior Coaches (JC) program is designed to train and mentor High School students. If you are interested in becoming a Junior Coach email us and we will send you an application. The commitment is one practice a week and monthly leadership workshops. The program length is for one season working with the same team during that time. This is a great opportunity for High School students to gain theoretical training and practical use of their skills that can all be credited towards community service hours.


Your support helps to grow tomorrow's leaders today!
