SHE'S AN EAGLE
FEMALE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
She’s an Eagles has been designed to increase the number of female coaches in our community. Female leaders in sports play a critical role in keeping other girls in sports by being role models and people they aspire to be like. At the club, we will look to bridge the gender gap in participation levels between boys and girls.
