We are always amazed with the positive impact we can have on our participants’ attitude and motivation towards staying active and pursuing sports in just a few short hours. Several years ago we had a young girl that was so shy we could barely pry her off her father’s arm. Several Ambassadors took turns inviting her to engage in the different activities, and eventually we got her to dribble a basketball and try jump roping. The next year her Father approached us at the beginning of our event and said his daughter had been completely inspired by her experience at Fast and Female and had developed a new excitement and passion for sports. We almost didn’t recognize this girl when she came running into the gym full of excitement and enthusiasm, no longer shy and timid. An amazing transformation in just a year!
