Colorado Altitude Charities is dedicated to the enhancement of opportunities for girl’s sports participation. We achieve this objective by providing scholarships for girls to participate in organized sports. In addition, we are committed to the development of the sport of softball including training for coaches and officials, tournament and league support and facilities development.
Studies have shown that girls who participate in sports:
· Are less likely to be involved in an unwanted pregnancy
· Are more likely to get better grades and graduate
· Reduce their risk of breast cancer by up to 60%
· Have increased self-confidence and improved body image
Colorado Altitude Charities targets girls ages 10-16. During this time, girls are facing a tough transition into their teen years. They are making decisions about who they are and who they can become. This age is critical for development of a positive self image and for making future healthy choices. Studies have shown that physical activity and participation in sports can help weather the storms of adolescence.
