Today, February 6th, is the day we celebrate girls and women in sports!

33 years ago in 1987, the National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) began to unite elite female athletes and women’s leagues, and highlight the promise of girls and women in sports. Powered by the Women’s Sports Foundation, every year has a theme that reflects the positive impact of sport and physical activity for women.

In 2019, the theme for NGWSD is Lead Her Forward, to honor the many ways that sports push girls and women to achieve excellence and realize their boundless potential.

“This year, NGWSD celebrates all the girls and women across the nation leading us forward into a bright future.”
