Our Mission

We inspire girls to find their own love of movement, embrace & love who they are, & grow into strong, confident women!

 

Our Impact

7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough.

Every child deserves to feel confident in her skin, proud of her unique talents and abilities, empowered to take care of her body, and feel included and connected with her peers.

 

Love Movement.

fitness is fun!

Our bodies are capable of amazing things! Our girls learn to be kind to their bodies through the power of creative fitness. We provide skills that our girls can teach to their peers and loved ones outside of our program, spreading the power of movement with others!

 

Love Your Squad.

positive peer connections

Our program provides all of the benefits of being on a team, without the pressures. Our girls learn how to be inclusive, supportive, & value each girl in her Squad, with love & compassion for all of our individual differences.

 
 

Love Yourself.

be proud to be you

Our girls learn to embrace their uniqueness, step out of their comfort zone, & conquer their fears. Simply put, our girls are given the tools to learn to fully love themselves.

 

June 2019

“People are always tearing themselves down, and this gave us a chance to build ourselves up ... My friend and I decided we would go together to see what it was like. We loved it. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve only missed one (session).”

— Bethany, 6th grade Girl Squad member

Our Program

We are a San Diego community-based after school program for 4th to 8th grade girls that teaches the physical, mental, & emotional value of everyday physical activity without the pressures of team sports.

We are not your typical fitness program! We blend movement with reflective exercises that focus on self-confidence, self-acceptance, & positive peer interactions. We provide a safe space for girls connect with peers. We respect our TEAM!


 

CREATIVE FITNESS

Sports are a wonderful way for girls to build confidence, but it's simply not every child's path. Luckily, you don’t have to play a sport to love being active; being active without the pressure of team sports is very powerful! We use creative fitness to teach our girls that movement is both fun & accessible to all.
 

PEER REALATIONSHIPS

Team play fosters healthy relationships, and our Squad respects our team! We create a safe space for our girls to build lasting relationships with other Squad members, as well as others in thier school and community. We strive to inspire our team to live with compassion and empathy for others.

SELF-LOVE

We provide girls with the tools they need to learn how to fully embrace self-love and acceptance. We focus strongly on activites that directly work to boost confidence. We believe that taking care of our bodies is one of the most powerful ways we can teach our youth how to find love from within. Our goal is a happy and healthy mind, and we use movement to get to that space.


FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS

Childhood and adolescence is the time to create sustainable healthy habits that will be carried on into adulthood. Family support plays a large role in a child’s ability to maintain a lifestyle that will support her wellbeing throughout her life. Our girls are given the tools to encourage their families and loved ones to share those healhty habits!
