Welcome to Fit Girls 2021.
We continue to celebrate all that our program does for girls in western Maine. We look forward to a more interactive spring program from home. Thank you to all who registered this spring.
Covid-19 April 6, 2021 and our Spring Program
We hope you are all safe and well. Things have certainly changed this past year. We continue to pay attention to the Maine CDC and our local school districts as to how we continue our programming throughout the school year.
With the RSU 9 guidelines regarding after school activities, our spring program will be provided as an at home kit. We have plans to be more interactive with the girls each week and we hope this inspires the girls to get involved. As much as we miss seeing all of the girls and our coaches, our at home program worked as a way to engage the girls from home as they continued to be safe, active and healthy. We will be using the Zoom format as a way to connect with the girls each week. We continue to hope our fall program will be in person.
We hope girls in 4th, 5th and 6th grades in the future will want to be Fit Girls.
Recent Happenings and Updates
Thank you Participants of Goodbye Covid Marathon 26.2
Fit Girls were inspired by members of the greater Farmington community this past week when Lori Koban, a UMF teacher, presented them with a check from funds raised at the Goodbye Covid Marathon Week. It was held between April 12 - April 18. The goal was to complete 26.2 miles running and/or walking during that time.
In Fit Girls, we encourage girls to find their pace, do their personal best and always think of themselves strong. These community members amazed us with their kindness, their generous spirit and commitment. Thank you so much!
