Coming your way this month Dream Big! will collaborate with several youth sports organizations in the Boston area to pilot a Boston Public Schools Double Dutch league for over 200 middle school girls known as Jump Boston!.
The following nine middle schools in the pilot program will receive funding for coaches, uniforms, and tournament participation: Higginson-Lewis, Irving Middle School, Mildred Ave, O’Bryant, Murphy, Young Achievers, Orchard Gardens, Gavin and Dearborn Middle Schools.
The league will run throughout the fall, with teams training 3 times per week for 8 weeks, and will culminate with a Jump Boston Double Dutch Tournament on December 18th in Boston. The organizations behind this project are: Red Auerbach Youth Foundation, Boston Public School Athletic Department, Center for Sports and Society, Play Ball! Foundation, Dream Big!, BYSI and the Women’s Sports Foundation GoGirlGo! Boston. Each organization is deeply committed to providing more sports and physical activity opportunities for girls in Boston.
