Welland Girls Sports Day

Engaging in sports equips young girls with essential skills for a prosperous future, promoting physical well-being, confidence, and valuable life lessons.

The City of Welland, in partnership with Niagara College, is hosting the third annual Welland Girls Sports Day on Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Empire Sportsplex. Open to girls from 6 to 12 years old, this is a fun and free event to introduce a variety of sports to young girls from accomplished local female athletes and coaches. There will be six different sports stations for the girls to try out after an initial warm-up and stretch: softball, basketball, beach volleyball, tennis, golf and soccer. After lunch, there will be free play time until 2 p.m.

The facility and all programs are accessible to everyone, and no experience is required. Girls will receive a free lunch, free swag.

A parent or guardian must be present to check in the pre-registered child and remain onsite for the event. While seating is available, we recommend that the parent/guardian bring their own chair.

Registration is now full. You can register your child on the waitlist. Should any spots become available, you will be notified.
