My name is Natalie Phillips and I am working with Dr. Jen Welter, gold medalist and the first female NFL coach, in partnership with the NFL Alumni, to bring a Grrridiron Girls flag football camp to Northern Colorado on Sunday, August 12, 2018.
It is for girls ages 6-18 and we have in-kind donations from Scheels in Johnstown, as well as Freddy’s Burgers in Loveland. The MileHigh Blaze, a semi-pro women’s tackle football team, will also be helping out.
Here is the Eventbrite link for registration and more information on Jen Welter: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/jen-welters-grrridiron-girls-flag-football-camp-northern-colorado-tickets-48005967140
I met Jen Welter initially at a UN Foundation Girl Up Leadership Summit over a year ago and since then, have been connected to her and had the opportunity to hear her speak and inspire business owners and entrepreneurs, as well as young kids in her multiple football camps. In addition, she released her first book, Play Big, in October 2017 and has been on a speaking circuit and book tour with multiple media outlets. She is incredibly inspirational and I am SO excited for her to agree to bring her camp to Colorado and we are lucky enough to be able to run it in Northern Colorado at Mountain View High School!
Please visit her website www.jenwelter.com for more information about Jen and her multiple camps.
