WNBA Fit encourages girls and women of all ages to learn more about their bodies and the importance of physical fitness through programs related to health, fitness, nutrition and self-esteem. Programming inspires girls and women to get started on being fit through small changes in their daily routine. The content of the program is communicated and delivered through a Team of Spokespeople and National and Local Events. 2013 programming includes Sky players, coaches and staff running instructional basketball clinics throughout the year. We will also be hosting a Move-A-Palooza event for the Girl Scouts on June 9th and a Youth Sports Night will also take place prior to the June 29th game.

Our programming plus an in-game experience is designed to show youth 7-18 ways to get active. The Sky Cares Foundation works with local girl-serving organizations (Girls in the Game, Girls on the Run, GoGirlGo Chicago, Step Up Womens Network, Chicago Park District and the Mayors Fitness Council as well as Chicago Public Schools) to identify youth from low income areas of Chicago and welcome them into an inspiring community of positive role-model volunteers. During the Move-A-Palooza and Youth Sports events various organizations introduces the kids to a variety of different sports and ways to stay active. Following each event the kids will participate in the excitement of a Chicago Sky game which affords an unforgettable opportunity for these kids to witness firsthand the power and poise of professional female athletes and provides a motivating message of what can be accomplished through dedication, determination and discipline.
