Montana Volunteers and Imagine Nation Brewing have teamed up to host a FREE summer kiddie carnival with games, hands-on sports demonstrations and lots of prizes.
There also will be live music and a food truck located at Imagine Nation Brewing.
It’s a chance for kids and parents to learn more about the athletic opportunities in Missoula and meet women athletes.
The event was organized to highlight women in sports and encourage girls to stick with them. (Boys and nonbinary kids are welcome to join the fun, too!)
By the age of 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys. 70% who quit during puberty said they didn’t feel like they belonged in sports.
