National Girls & Women In Sport Day To Highlight Big Weekend Of CU Women’s Basketball


BOULDER – This weekend’s women’s basketball games will feature some of the biggest promotions of the season as the Buffs wrap up their home schedule at the Coors Events Center.

Sunday’s noon game against Oregon (televised on Pac-12 Mountain Network) is highlighted by National Girls & Women in Sport Day. Beginning at 10 a.m., kids are invited to be part of the celebration by participating in skills and fitness stations set up around the Coors Events Center, and an autograph session with CU student-athletes. All girls in 8th grade and under and boys in 6th grade and under are welcome to participate in the event. All activities are free and participants will receive a complimentary general admission ticket to the game. Accompanying adults must purchase a game ticket.

National Girls & Women In Sport Day was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1986 to honor female athletic achievement and recognize the importance of sports and fitness participation for all girls and women.

Sunday’s game will also feature several other promotions and events. Colorado’s spirit squad will host a clinic, also at 10 a.m. for kids ages 4-12. The cost is $40 and includes the clinic, a t-shirt and a game ticket. The Jr. Buffs Spirit Clinic participants will also perform at halftime of the game.
