Girls Motivating Girls to Get in the Game!

Congratulations to Rhema C. ’25 and Talya S. ’25 who were selected as Nike Game Growers Co-Captains for the Los Angeles Clippers.
This program, in partnership with the WNBA and the NBA, seeks to address the startling statistic that by the time girls reach 8th grade, they are 50% more likely to drop out of sports than boys. The Game Growers program provides an opportunity for the winners to develop ideas that counter this problem. Out of hundreds of applications from 7th and 8th grade students from across the nation, Rhema and Talya were the only two chosen to develop their idea with the Clippers.

Ashley Lyles of the Nike Game Growers program, visited the middle school chapel to announce this exciting news. “This is a huge accomplishment!” Ashley said. “Rhema and Talya worked so hard on their application and it really showed. They will be getting to share their love of sport with other athletes and girls across the nation. They get to work with me and the Clippers organization all season long to find ways to grow their idea.”

Middle School Principal Dr. Marina Kheel told the girls: “I was so moved by your initiative and the way you were willing to tackle this important challenge through your ideas...You are proof that kids matter and your ideas will move the world.”

Middle School Athletic Director Jennifer Prince noted: “Being a female athletic director as well as a former college athlete, I love that you’re representing Campbell Hall and everything that you are. Empowering young girls to play sports past middle school is so important. The two of you are special young ladies on the court as well as off the court.”

We look forward to hearing more about how Rhema and Talya will be helping to motivate girls to get in the game and we echo the sentiment of the Nike Game Growers’ tagline: “Girls who move, move the world!”
