PRINCETON (3/5/13) -- The Princeton University Department of Athletics will host its 14th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day this Saturday, March 9 at Jadwin Gymnasium. The event will be held prior to the women's basketball game with Brown, which begins at 6 p.m.

The event will feature a sports clinic behind the main court on the indoor track beginning at 5 p.m., and continuing until the start of the basketball game. The clinic will offer participants the chance to learn the fundamentals of a variety of sports from Princeton student-athletes and coaches.

Following the game, the women's basketball team will hold an autograph session. Admission to the sports fair is free with the purchase of a ticket to the basketball game. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children under age 14 and will be available at the door.

Since its inception in 1987, NGWSD has become the premiere occasion to celebrate the participation, success and accomplishments of girls and women athletes. What started in 1987 as a single event in Washington, D.C. to honor Olympic volleyball star Flo Hyman has grown into a nationwide celebration across all 50 states.
