Members of the Salve Regina and local communities are invited to bring their daughters to the Rodgers Recreation Center for the University’s fifth annual free multi-sport clinic for girls in grades 2-6 on Friday, Feb. 1.

The clinic begins at 5:30 p.m., and pizza will be served following the clinic.

Student-athletes from many of the women’s athletic teams will be on hand to demonstrate techniques and fundamentals of their respective sports to all youths in attendance. Last year, students from the basketball, lacrosse, soccer, track & field and volleyball teams were among those in attendance.

“We are excited about hosting this clinic for the fifth straight year,” said associate athletic director Kelly Scafariello. “The young girls participating, as well as our own student-athletes, learn from this event and have a lot of fun. Both have really enjoyed the event the last few years, and we expect nothing but the same in year five.”

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.

For more information, contact Scafariello at (401) 341-2247 or kelly.scafariello@salve.edu. Participants may register on site beginning at 5:15 p.m. or complete the downloadable form and bring with them on Feb. 1.

    Look forward to attending the event with my daughter. It will give her an outlook as to what college and sports are about instead of hearing about it through conversations with her brother.
