Girls’ Team Startup Project

Start Your Team Today!

The goal of the Girls’ Team Startup Project (GTSP) is to give new or developing high school girls’ teams the resources and support they need to succeed as a team in order to ultimately help grow the girls’ division. Modeled after the College Women’s Startup Project, the GTSP will provide support for participating schools for up to three years to help them develop into competitive and self-sustaining teams. After the overwhelming success of our first year, we’re excited to continue this project and spread ultimate to more and more schools across the nation!

Applications for the 2019 season are due January 15, 2019.
