February, 5th, 2020 is National Girls and Women in Sports Day – an annual day of observance during which we acknowledge the accomplishments of female athletes, recognize the influence of sports participation for women and girls, and honor the progress and continuing struggle for equality for women in sports.
This year, we partnered with the NY Knicks to host a Jr. Knicks clinic with one of our STARS Series sites – MS 126. The over 60 girls in attendance (all middle school aged) had an amazing time fine tuning their skills with the fabulous Knicks clinicians. We were also treated to an empowering panel discussion led Monica McNutt (Co-host of MSG 150, and former Division I basketball player), and NY Knicks legend Larry ‘Grandmama’ who reminded our young athletes that they could accomplish anything they set their minds to.
Huge THANK YOU to the NY Knicks organization for collaborating with us. We are excited for our next activation with you.
