Gurnee Park District Working to Improve Decline in Girls’ Athletics

Gurnee Park District (GPD) brings awareness to girls' sports and athletics through girls only open gym times.

"After opening the Women's Fitness Studio at FitNation, we received a lot of positive feedback from the community. We thought it was important to support not only our fitness members, but the youth of Gurnee as well," stated Christopher Marzano, Youth Athletics Supervisor with GPD.

Hunt Club Park Community Center (920 N. Hunt Club Rd., Gurnee) will be hosting the open gyms. All girls are welcome to play basketball, work on their skills and practice drills for only $5.00.

"We have been noticing a decline in girls participating in athletics, and we wanted to play an active role in encouraging all kids to play. Basketball open gym is the perfect opportunity for everyone to have fun and be active in a comfortable, recreational setting," Marzano added.
