The sixth annual “Play Like a Girl” sports clinic took place Feb. 9. Girls aged five to 12 worked with Oberlin’s student-athletes to learn how to play soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, and field hockey. The goal of the event was to show young girls that sports can be enjoyed by everyone and, through Oberlin student-athletes to, provide strong female role models. College second-year and varsity softball player Cat Moruzzi enjoys the regular event because it reminds her of how she started playing sports at a young age.
“It is important to make girls feel like they have power in such male-dominated activities from a young age,” she said. “Many life lessons can come from sports, so if girls learn the importance of confidence and perseverance from a young age, they will be able to conquer any obstacle in front of them.”
