The discussion will focus on girls and sports. Sports are a solution for many of the serious health and social problems faced by girls. These include obesity, substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression. In addition, to the multitude of health benefits, sports activity at an early age provides a foundation to succeed later in life teaching lessons of teamwork, goal-setting, leadership and competition.
YWCA Rhode Island’s Twitter Party is one of more than 1,000 events taking place across the country for National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Congress has proclaimed this day each year since 1987. National Girls and Women in Sports Day is devoted to recognizing the progress of girls and women in sports, and the benefits that sports and fitness activities can bring to their lives.
