“Girls At Bat is the first program at our school that allows for a try out-free sports space for girls. We had 31 students on the team that would usually not try out for any sports, who finally got the opportunity to be part of a team and belong to something special.” – Girls At Bat Educator

“Thanks to Girls at Bat, newcomer girls have the opportunity to participate in sport feeling included and part of the community connecting with other Youth”. - Girls At Bat Community Partner

“On our second session, the team created a mural together. We had a whole practice planned, with lots of different activities, but the team was having so much fun chatting, laughing and drawing that we ran out of time for anything else! Watching them connect with each other and bond as a team was a highlight for all of the coaches!” – Girls At Bat Educator
