In order to inspire our leaders of the future it is critical to teach them a GRIT mindset, be positive in their words and their behaviors, and to help them transition from girls to confident young women.  Simply said we want to help every girl know that they are uniquely designed to be just them and help them strive to be at their BEST and have FUN during the journey.  The non-profit started in 2016 and was designed to be accessible to all girls at a low-cost and formatted in a way that they build new relationships, learn new things, and have a place to grow.  Statistics show that girls who play sports have higher self esteem, better grades, higher graduation rates and are less likely to be depressed.  However with these great benefits participation in sports is declining every year.  Our goal is to change that, because we know and understand the benefits of sports for girls starting at an early age.  We focus on each girls setting her own goals, creating plans to Improve, and learning how to use support and give support to teammates as they pursue being their very BEST!

About Girls with Gritcc

Building Confidence in girls through SPORTS

​​Girls with GRITcc 

I was inspired to start a camp more focused on the fundamentals of girls basketball because the participation in girls sports is decreasing, and especially in basketball.  I grew up in Albany, NY and started playing basketball recreationally outside at the park and through my after school program.  I played because I loved the game and I had three older brothers, but I didn't start learning the true fundamentals until I attended my first camp at 12 years old which equipped me with the tools I needed to utilize basketball to open so many doors for me.  As a former college athlete and a former coach, playing basketball has been a tremendous enabler in helping me find a career in business by teaching me responsibility, teamwork, commitment and most of old building my confidence to be a strong woman.    The commitment of coaches who donated their time to let a kid like me have a chance will never be forgotten and was of significant value.  This camp was created to INSPIRE girls to continue to learn and play the sports as well as help them continue to develop the key fundamentals of respect, responsibility, confidence and team work at such a critical time in their development.  If you're passionate about our mission please come be a part and volunteer to be apart of the change! #IAMMYBEST
