CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson Athletics is set to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) with a series of recognitions and events beginning this Sunday. Clemson will host a free clinic for kids 12 and under at Littlejohn Coliseum beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 30, prior to the women’s basketball team’s game against nationally ranked Georgia Tech.
The clinic will include several student-athletes from Clemson’s women’s programs on the concourse, and offer a series of skill-based challenges. Doors at Littlejohn Coliseum open at 5 p.m. ahead of the 6 p.m. game, which is free. Per current university protocols, masks are required within Littlejohn Coliseum.
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.
Clemson will also have a series on social media recognizing the contributions of the women around the official date of NGWSD on Feb. 2.
