GAMBIER — Kenyon College women’s sports programs are joining together in observance of National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Sunday, Feb. 12. Girls in kindergarten through eighth grade are invited to sharpen their skills or learn a new sport through the variety of free clinics offered at the annual event.
The activities begin at 12:30 p.m. with a welcome at the multi-activity court in the state-of-the-art Kenyon Athletic Center. Members of Kenyon’s women’s sports teams will then lead workshops for basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball until 3 p.m. At the conclusion of the clinics, a reception featuring pizza and snacks will be held for all participants.
