***THE FESTIVAL***The Festival celebrates the Hijabi Ballers project, its athletes and community members. It is open to everybody but is targeted towards Muslim women and girls and is an opportunity for them to meet each other and make connections through sports, recreation and wellness while having the opportunity to be part of sport spaces in their communities. The event features a girls-only multi-sport tournament*, drop-in fitness sessions and lots of fun activities. The Hijabi Ballers Sports Festival allows our youth, children and adults to explore and find what speaks to us when leading healthier lives and being active members in our communities. It also provides an opportunity for people and groups who do not self-identify as 'Muslim female athletes' to learn more about Muslims, women and their involvement in athletics in their communities.
All ages and genders welcome to attend the event. Tournament* exclusive to girls 14+.
Sign up your team (ages 14+) to play in the all-girls multi-sport tournament which includes soccer, flag rugby and basketball games. Learn what it's like to play on a team, be competitive and have fun with your friends! The tournament is targeted for beginners, but all are welcome to join. Teams will consist of 8-10 players. If you sign up individually or in a team of less than 8 people, you will be placed into or have individuals added to your team. Each game will be approximately 15 minutes long and you will get to play at least 4 games with your team over the course of the event. All participants receive prizes. WINNING TEAM WINS A GRAND PRIZE!
