National Women and Girls in Sports Breakfast
The Rome Sports Hall of Fame and Museum will hold a breakfast
at the Delta Lake Inn on Saturday, April 7th from 9-11am.
This breakfast 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 national day each year since 1987. The National Girls and Women in Sports Organization recognizes the extraordinary progress sparked by Title IX and the ongoing effort to ensure access to sports for girls and women. Research demonstrates that girls who play sports have better health, higher self-esteem, stronger leadership skills, greater academic achievement and economic opportunity. Let's work together through NGWSD to get these girls in the game and expand their opportunities both in sports and in life. (http://ngwsd.org/).
The Rome Sports Hall of Fame wants to promote participation in all athletics by celebrating with our High School and youth in honor of National Girls & Women in Sports Day! The Rome Sports Hall of Fame is partnering with the Rome City School District and Rome Catholic to promote and create opportunities for all young 6th grade girls and High School athletes! We want to celebrate athletic participation and provide some opportunities for young girls to learn a new sport and encourage them to continue participation through their high school years and beyond!
The Rome Sports Hall of Fame invites YOU to come celebrate with us and to be treated to a full breakfast and have the opportunity to hear about what athletics has done for many successful women. You will hear from high school students, possibly college students and some Rome Sports Hall of Fame and Museum Female Inductees! Come hear about how sports changed their lives!!
The breakfast is free for 6th grade girls and female high school athletes. One adult is welcome to attend along with a 6th grade girl ($10 fee for adult). Over 150 people are expected to attend the breakfast. However, as the Delta Lake Inn has a limited seating capacity, you must register for the event. The deadline for responding is Monday, March 12, 2018.
