Campers learn about Attitude, Preparation, Courage and Sportswomanship as they work through their lessons and push themselves to learn new sports and try new skills.
High school girls serve as team captains, and middle school girls serve as junior captains. Instructors come from local universities, colleges, high schools, and other area organizations. WIN for KC offers a fun, safe and encouraging environment for the girls ages 6-12 to explore and learn these different activities.
