High School Athletes
Girls love learning sports from other girls! That’s why Team GPS carefully selects the top high school female student-athletes that know how to connect with girls in a fun way, while teaching the fundamentals of the sport they love. All of our counselors go through an interview process and training to make sure they understand how to make learning fun and exciting for middle school girls.
