Girls learn much more than physical skills through their participation in athletics.
They benefit from the values of discipline, dedication, selflessness, and hard work derived from team participation. The collaborative experience of pursuing and attaining a common goal in athletics is unique, as it is combined with interscholastic competition.
Through this experience, girls are able to develop courage as they take risks, strength while displaying finesse, competitive intensity while exhibiting generosity of spirit, and mental as well as physical endurance.
While the focus is to facilitate the development of each girl's athletic potential, the greater hope is to instill motivation to continue lifelong physical activity.
