The Girls Inc.

The Athletics Department is dedicated to providing an environment where each athlete can feel free to grow as a player. The skills taught and the commitment required will enable the individual player to reach personal goals to help their team reach its potential. The strength of each program lies in the combination of the quality coaches and volunteer staff, hard working and talented athletes, as well as the enthusiasm and support from parents.
