(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: The month of March, designated as Women’s History Month (WHM), continued on track with the Rams commitment to accentuate their scheduled observances in greater Southern California, Southeast, and Southwest Los Angeles with the sponsoring of (9) Girls Flag Football Camps/Clinics in partnerships with Nike and Gatorade.
We were on hand to cover the event held at Crenshaw High School on Saturday, March 18th and invite you to see the what the Clinic and the Panel discussions looked like through the eyes and lens of our producer.
Over the course of the next 60 minutes, be prepared to see the basic skills and drills that were taught by the Los Angeles Legends organization, (Women’s Pro Football Tackle Team), during the session, and listen to how the Rams staff and the three invited guest panelists addressed over 100 attendees from high schools that ranged from a dozen of well-recognized Open & Division 1-2-3 schools, down to the newer and smaller schools, under the jurisdiction of the L.A. Unified School District (LAUSD) and administered by the CIF/L.A. City Section (CIF/LACS).
We ended our coverage of the day with brief “one-on-one” interviews of three participants, two from the Westchester Enriched Science Magnet School, and one from the King/Drew Magnet High School of Medicine & Science. And, last, but certainly not least, we can’t leave out the acknowledgements and the collaborations of Gatorade as they provided all of the hydration liquids during the entire clinic, and Little Caesars Pizza, for making sure that the much-appreciated end of camp pizza slices were made available to all of the participants.
Hope you enjoy our presentation, and if you have a little extra time, please share this with other young ladies and their parents/guardians who you believe might consider allowing their dependents to compete in the newest sport under the main jurisdiction of the State of California’s Interscholastic Federation/Southern Section (CIF/SS) for this coming 2023-2024 school year.
On a final informational note, we also came out to the 9th and final Clinic of the Rams observance of Women’s History month 0n Thursday, March 30th when we traveled to the Challengers Boys & Girls Clubhouse, and its recently refurbished Football Field, located at 50th and Vermont. Over 150 young female students, representing grades 2 through 12, who attend the core group of local schools, as well as being members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Los Angeles, all had big fun in meeting new friends while learning some of the basics skills in learning how to play the sport of Flag Football.
We will shortly be publishing that Clinic on our website to conclude the Rams’ month-long efforts of introducing this sport to the many hundreds of young girls who believe that they have the ability to compete and excel in this now, and very fast-growing girls’ sport.
