Girls ages 6 to 12 try their hand (and feet!) at soccer at Southern Vermont College's Girls and Women in Sports Day event Sunday.

BENNINGTON, Vt. — The Athletic Department at Southern Vermont College hosted a Girls and Women in Sports Day on Sunday. 

The event featured free clinics from SVC's female athletes from lacrosse, basketball, volleyball and softball for about a dozen local girls ages 6 to 12, as well as warmups and games.

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day, a national observance celebrating the extraordinary achievements of women and girls in sports. This event aims to empower females to get moving, embrace physical activity and push past their limits.

This is the second year SVC has hosted an event, at which the girls also got lunch and a t-shirt.
