10th Annual Fins Up Football Camp for Girls

2015 Fall Camp Photo

On Saturday, November 14th, 2015, the (now) Women’s Gridiron Foundation (formerly the Fins Up Foundation), held another in a long line of instructional football camps for girls, ages 13-17. Uniondale High School, the Young Women’s Leadership School, and several other students from around the NYC area had a fun-filled day of football, laughter and a healthy lunch provided by FreshDirect.

The player coaches from the New York Sharks taught basic football skills along with essential life-skill teaching moments, critical to the positive development of young girls.
