Join us on a journey to discover how being physically active helps you become a leader.

We are excited to announce a new program for teenage girls this February!  Fearless Females will inspire and explore leadership and empowerment through sport.  Over 4 weeks we will learn from personal reflection, group discussion & the stories of women who compete in cycling, triathlon, skiing, field hockey, and other sports.
