TrueGrit Girls Football - NEW FOR 2024

TrueGrit powered by Gridiron Partners, will be leading our first ever Girls Flag Football Camp. TrueGrit’s mission is to empower, encourage and inspire females to be fearless on and off the field through female flag football programs. This incredible program was created in the fall of 2018, when founders, Jenn Kisslinger and Katie DiChiaro, started a girls’ flag football league in their hometown of Somers, New York. What started out as a 30-player pilot league, grew successfully into a wildly popular town recreational program. With this motivation and in line with TrueGrit’s mission, Jenn and Katie set their sights on bigger accomplishments for females ages 5 and beyond. With hard work, tenacity and true grit, Katie and Jenn, with the support of the NY Giants, successfully pushed the NY Public High School Athletic Association to make girls flag football a high school varsity sport.

The TEC Girls Football Camp is an exciting new addition in 2024, and is designed to challenge beginners through advanced players, culminating with a 7-on-7 tournament.

Campers will receive 4 hours of instruction each day

Coach Monica has designed the TEC Academy to provide both beginner and advanced players with consistent weekly high-level instruction, on- court conditioning, and match play strategy.
