Rider Hosts National Girls and Women in Sports Day Sunday
LAWRENCEVILLE--The Rider University women's basketball team will host Niagara University as part of National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Sunday at 1pm.
Prior to the game, there will be a free all sports clinic with Rider's female student-athletes for girls ages 5-18 from 11am-12:30pm in the Student Recreation Center on campus.
"We get tremendous support for all of our women's sports programs from Rider faculty, staff and alumni and our local community members so this all-sports clinic with all of our female student-athletes is our way to give back. In past years, we've gotten calls from parents telling us how much a young girl enjoyed learning about a new sport during the clinic," said Associate Director of Athletics for External Operations and Development/SWA, Karin Torchia. "The celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day also allows us to honor our women's teams and their accomplishments both athletically and academically."
As part of National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Rider invites girls ages 5 to 18 to a free all-sports clinic with eight of the Broncs' varsity women's athletics teams (field hockey, volleyball, soccer, tennis, softball, track & field, swimming and diving, cross country) and cheerleading from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Student Recreation Center adjacent to Alumni Gym on Rider's campus. Check-in/registration for the clinic will begin at 10:30 a.m. and the actual clinic activities will begin at 11 a.m. Complimentary tickets to the Rider vs. Niagara women's basketball game at 1 p.m. will also be given to all clinic participants. Girls do not need to have any prior experience in any of the sports to participate in the clinic. All equipment will be provided during the clinic, however, if participants prefer they may bring their own equipment. Participants will not do any swimming and will not need a swimsuit as the portion of the clinic with that team will be on land exercises.
Pre-registration for the clinic is preferred, but not required and girls can just show up on Sunday to participate. To pre-register for the clinic, call 609.896.5054 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets to the women's basketball game on February 9 at 1 p.m. are free for ALL kids 18 & under and adults attending with a clinic participant can get a general admission ticket for $3. Fans can purchase tickets or get more information on the day's events by calling the Rider Athletics ticket office at 609-896-5054.
