About the National Day of Girls and Women in Sports
February 2, 2022 marks the 36th annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD). For more than three decades, this festival has enabled women and girls to exercise, take advantage of physical activity, and push their limits in both sport and life. The confidence, strength, and character gained through exercise and physical activity are the tools girls need to become strong leaders in their own lives and in the world.
The NGWSD Coalition knows that educating the public about the power of this legislation is vital to its enforcement, so we encourage you to learn more about our work and the resources we have provided on Title IX. The better you understand Title IX and the rights it protects, the better you can ensure that everyone in your community has an equal opportunity to play sports.
For more than three decades, NGWSD has supported women and girls in getting exercise, doing physical activity and pushing their limits. The courage, confidence, and character gained through exercise are the tools girls need to become the strong leaders of tomorrow.
