Fog Women coach at GRRRL Camp!


Fog Women will be leading a session w/ GRRRL Camp this summer from July 16th-20th for girls ages 6-12!

GRRRL is a nonprofit organization that empowers girls to realize their full potential through sports, dance, self-defense, health education, and social justice education.

The camp facilitates the creation of a network of powerful girls who are self-confident and support each other. Participants inspire each other to fight beauty standards, attitudes, and assumptions that are taught by the media. GRRRL focuses on middle school girls to provide them with the tools to make healthy choices and to be self-confident on the field, in school, and in the workplace.

Each afternoon (1-4pm) will consist of a sport/activity and workshop. In an exciting and rare collaboration, girls (6-12 years old) will experience the basics in CrossFit, Soccer, Self-Defense, Modern Dance, and Rugby! They will also learn about the history of women in sports, body image, leadership and more! Join us for a fun week at Eureka Valley Rec Center!

'With You' Screening - Jun 18 @ 4pm

Come represent San Francisco Fog RFC as we support the release of With You, a documentary honoring our fallen brother, Mark Bingham. If attending, it is recommended that you wear a white button-down shirt and fog tie.

Doors open at 3:30pm. Tickets may be purchased in advance here. View the original trailer.

Description: WITH YOU is a feature length documentary focusing on the unique bond between a mother and son and how it was ultimately strengthened by the tragedy of 9/11. The film explores the lives of Mark Bingham, one of the heroes of United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, and his mother, Alice Hoagland, a former United Airlines flight attendant. Devastated by her loss but inspired by the memory of her son, Alice becomes a nationally known authority on airline safety and a champion of LGBT rights across the country. Within the shadow of a national tragedy, With You illuminates a personal story of love, loss and the true nature of heroism.

Pre-screening meet & greet:
Come meet members of the SF Fog RFC for drinks at Toad Hall before attending the “With You” screening, 2:00-3:15PM.
