Our Mission


Play Like a Girl!® is a national 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in 2004. Our mission is to ensure that every girl reaches her full potential by providing girls ages 9-13 an opportunity—and in many cases, their only chance—to participate in sport and physical activity.

We endeavor to harness the natural properties of sport to propel young women into competitive, male-dominated careers—especially those at the intersection of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and sports. To accomplish this, we offer programs and resources designed to transform girls’ motivation into an “I am unstoppable” attitude.

It is our goal to help girls everywhere find the courage to do things beyond the field of play that they never thought possible. We believe that girls given the opportunity to play on a team become women who have the confidence to stand on their own.

How We Play


In 2018, Play Like a Girl will impact the lives of more than 10,000 girls and young women through our popular afterschool sports clubs and one-day STEM camps for middle school girls, community events, digital tools and innovative partnerships in communities across Nashville and throughout the United States and Canada.

We will also ensure women have a renewed sense of urgency around the disproportionate drop in sport participation and physical activity among girls through outreach to more than 2,500 women nationwide. These women will go on to reach more than 5,000 girls in the year to come with more unique opportunities for play in their local communities.
