The Amherst College Department of Athletics, in partnership with the Town of Amherst and Amherst Recreation Department, is proud to host National Girls and Women in Sports Day. This event, dedicated to honoring the achievements of girls and women in sports, aims to recognize the power of sports and play in unlocking limitless potential.

NGWSD at Amherst College will provide girls and nonbinary youth in grades four through six with a unique opportunity to explore various sports, play and have fun together. The event will feature activities led by women's sports teams, including squash, basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, field hockey, lacrosse, golf, cross country and track & field.

The program will kick off in Middleton Gymnasium at 10 a.m. with a warm welcome and introduction by Dr. Emily Jones and Jennifer Chuks. Sydni Spencer will lead a group warm-up session, concluding with an exciting cheer to set the tone for the day. Girls will then be divided into teams so they can try different sports and games. 

Parents and guardians must remain on the premises; however, they will have the opportunity to attend presentations by our nutritionist and receive details about local sports and fitness organizations. Additionally, refreshments will be provided for their enjoyment.
