CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson Athletic Department held an open clinic with more than 200 participants in celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. The event brought kids in sixth grade and below into Littlejohn Coliseum ahead of the women’s basketball game against North Carolina on Jan. 29. The children took part in 10 stations, run by Clemson student-athletes in cheer, dance, lacrosse, gymnastics, softball, track, golf, rowing and volleyball.
NGWSD was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1986 to honor female athletic achievement and recognize the importance of sports and fitness participation for all girls and women. NGWSD has evolved into a vibrant movement that celebrates the power of women in sports and the continued push for equity, especially as the 50th Anniversary of Title IX is acknowledged nationwide.
