CPS Partners to Provide Summer Sports Camps for Girls

Cincinnati Public Schools has partnered with the nonprofit “Girls with GRIT” to offer girls early access opportunities to participate in camps this upcoming summer.  Girls with GRIT was developed to help build confidence in girls through sports by teaching the foundational sports skills, building relationships with fellow campers and positive staff role models, and building life skills through sports.

The partnership between CPS and Girls with GRIT makes 3 sports camps available this summer. Each sport has a separate camp and a 3-day clinic held on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Following the clinic there are 4 additional sessions referred to as “follow ups” to continue to develop the skills and confidence of the camper. Spots are limited to girls in 3rd through 8th grade.

The Girls Summer Camp Sports Clinics for GIRLS Includes:

1) Soccer at Pleasant Hill Academy
This 3-Day clinic will be June 17th (from 9am to 3pm), July 18th (from 9am to 12pm), and July 19th (from 1 to 5pm). The additional sessions will be on June 21st, 23rd, 28th, & 30th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

2) Volleyball at DePaul Cristo Rey
This 3-Day clinic will be July 8th (from 9am to 3pm), July 9th (from 1pm to 5pm), and July10th (from 1pm to 5pm). The additional sessions will be on July 11th, 13th, 18th, & 20th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

3) Basketball at Woodford Academy
This 3-day clinic will be July 29th (from 9am to 3pm), July 30th (from 1pm to 5pm), and July 31st (from 1 to 5pm). The additional sessions will be on August 2nd, 4th, 8th, & 11th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

The goal of these programs is to provide opportunities to girls who are interested and want to get involved with sports. The clinic cost is $50 per sport, per camper.  A camper can be registered for as little as one sport or as many as all three sports.
