Our Goal Is To Educate Our Young Women To Succeed!!!

 

Sporty Girls, Inc. is a non-profit organization that encourages minority girls to become active and successful in non-traditional sports.  Sporty Girls exposes girls to golf, swimming, soccer and tennis while building and developing good character.  Our mission is to cultivate, enrich and challenge young women to participate in non-traditional sports, while developing and fostering lifestyle skills.

Camp Elite is a premiere camp that will cater to up to minority athletes from metro Atlanta.  This camp is ideal for athletes in grades 5 - 12 who are already competing in one of the aforementioned sports.  It will provide athletes with an opportunity to hone their skills during a weeklong camp.    The selection process is competitive and therefore preference is granted to athletes presently engaged in the designated sports.

CAMP FORMAT
Camp Elite will be held on a college campus in metro Atlanta and requires a week-long, overnight stay for all athletes.  There will be one camp sessions featuring all four sports.  Campers are allowed to participate in one sport per session.  The dates for Camp Elite 2015 are Sunday, June 5 through Friday, June 10.
