Girls Play Sports (GPS) is a non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to building leadership skills and confidence in girls through their participation in a wide variety of sports. GPS offers this program for communities/high schools to help introduce girls to a wide variety of sports, provide them with role models and emphasize pride in being a female athlete.

Girls Play Sports Leagues and Tournaments

Girls Play Sports will continue to offer a variety of league and tournament opportunities that are not currently offered for girls in the Evanston community.  Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, GPS will offer the following Leagues and Tournaments at Evanston Township High School:

  • Tennis Tournament
  • Cross Country Meet
  • Volleyball League
  • Basketball Tournament
  • Bowling Tournament
  • Badminton Tournament
  • Water Polo League

Each league and tournament session will begin with a 45-minute skills segment to ensure the basic fundamentals are taught.  Teams will be assembled to provide competitive balance and rules will be implemented to reinforce the importance of proper fundamentals.  Leagues will be six weeks long and tournaments will consist of pool play followed by a bracketed tournament.  Effort Awards will be presented to the girls that demonstrate the best attitude and effort throughout the day.  This program will expand and deepen our girls’ connection and interest in sports while giving them the hands-on experience to strengthen their confidence to compete.
