YES! GWS ROCKS!!!!awesome-elyria-programs

Girls With Sole utilizes the proven power of fitness and sports combined with a unique curriculum of self-esteem building activities and art projects to instill confidence, self-esteem, physical strength, teamwork, and a passion for success in the lives of girls and young women in Northeast Ohio.

Our success and effectiveness is due greatly to collaboration.

By partnering with schools, social service agencies, juvenile detention facilities, and hospitals, Girls With Sole reaches girls aged 9 to 18 whom otherwise would not have access to sports and fitness opportunities, and therefore, a healthier body image and self-esteem.
