February 7th - National Girls & Women In Sports Day

February 7th - National Girls & Women In Sports Day

The 21st annual National Girls & Women In Sports Day (NGWSD) will take place on February 7, 2007 - The theme for NGWSD 2007 is "Throw Like a Girl, Lead Like a Champion."

Originally, NGWSD was established in 1986 to celebrate the achievements of girls and women in sports and to honor Flo Hyman, a member of the 1984 Olympic silver medal volleyball team who died suddenly while competing in Japan in 1986.

The day also serves to recognize the positive influence of sports participation and the continuing struggle for equality and access for women in sports.

It's celebrated in all 50 states with community-based events, award ceremonies, and activities to honor the achievements and encourage participation of girls and women in sports.

How awesome is that? You can find an activity or event in your state - and not all the events are on Feb 7.

This is a great way to raise awareness about women's sports, and to get young girls excited about it early enough, so they can continue staying active and healthy for the rest of their lives.

Also wanted to let you know the American Idol rocker Chris Daughtry is a fan of Women's Hoops!!! He will be playing a free concert in Greensboro, North Carolina on March 23rd to kick off the Women's NCAA Basketball Championship. Sounds like it will be a rockin' good time.
