34th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day

February 5, 2020, marks the 34th Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD). This celebration inspires girls and women to play and be active, to realize their full power. The confidence, strength and character gained through sports participation are the very tools girls and women need to become strong leaders in sports and life. We invite you to celebrate NGWSD in your community and to join the Women’s Sports Foundation as we Lead Her Forward in 2020.

If you believe in the importance of your profession to the education of the whole child, the need to support and engage future professionals, the need to keep informing legislators and administrators of the value of our professions in health, physical education, recreation, and dance, and if you want a variety of professional development opportunities that will provide for continued learning, then join the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance!
