Morristown, NJ - On February 6th, 2019 Youth1.com will be all about the girls. To celebrate the 33rd Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day, the homepage of Youth1.com will exclusively feature articles, videos and features on girls and women in sports.
“At Youth1 we’ve always believed in the power of girl’s sports, so when we get an opportunity to celebrate this day, we want to go all out,” said Youth1 President Laura Petrillo. “There are millions of girls across the country doing amazing things in athletics and we want to use our platform to let the world know about it.”
Headlining Youth1’s NGWSD homepage will be an interview with the NHL’s Jackie Redmond, the league’s top female host and anchor. NHL Network is sharing the article with Youth1 exclusively via social media platforms. Throughout the day, the Youth1 homepage also will feature top stories focusing on female athletes nationwide spanning 12 major youth sports.
The Highlight Video of the Day, Champion of the Day, a calendar of the major events across the country, and a selection of Youth1 Player Profiles, pages where athletes and parents can post their highlights, accomplishments, photos, and goals will also be featured as well.

“The performance of the girls at the Y1ACT tell you everything you need to know about the ferocity of today’s female athlete,” Petrillo said. “They put on amazing performances. We can’t wait to get more girls tested and let the world know what they can do.”
