Girls Got Game!

Since our school began, we’ve understood and encouraged the connection between girls and athletics. Today more than ever, we see girls who play sports develop not only strong muscles and self confidence, but also the ability to work through adversity, solve problems, and leverage teamwork. Whether she’s throwing or rowing, diving or driving, cheering or persevering, at our summer athletic camps, your girl will work with GPS coaches and athletes who are winners on and off the fields. What a great way for her to see what she’s made of!
Make any half-day athletic camp a full day by adding a camp in the morning or afternoon! See registration for more details.
