W&L To Host a Girls Sports Clinic

LEXINGTON, Va. – Washington and Lee University is teaming up with Virginia Amateur Sports, Inc. to provide a sports clinic for girls intended to promote self-esteem and healthy living.

The Girls Sports Clinic is intended for girls aged 7-12 and will be held on Sun., Sept. 20 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm in Doremus Gymnasium.  It is open to the first 50 girls and registration will begin at 1:30 pm.

Several Washington and Lee sports teams, the student-athletes and coaches, will instruct the participants in running, basketball, swimming and lacrosse.  Among the head coaches assisting with the program are Brooke Diamond (lacrosse), Kami Gardner (swimming), Kris Hoey (cross country/track & field) and Mandy King (basketball).

“We believe that this will be a wonderful experience to teach these girls the importance of sports and fitness programs,” said Gardner.  “It is a great way to introduce them to a variety of activities to promote healthy living and hopefully begin a lifelong involvement in sports and an active lifestyle.”

The registration forms are available at the link below and will be distributed to local schools.  Please return them to assistant women’s lacrosse coach Megan Moore at moorem@wlu.edu or PO Drawer 928, Lexington, VA 24450.

Just a reminder that the clinic is limited to the first 50 girls registered and all participants should bring running shoes, a bathing suit and towel.
