Gridiron Girl: Meet the first female coach in the NFL

Posted: Updated:

Play big, dream bigger, and have a game plan to turn your dreams into reality. 

That’s what Dr. Jen Welter is doing for young ladies with her GRRRIDIRON Girls Football Camp here in San Diego. 

“There’s no game we cannot play or field we don’t belong on.” 

Dr. Welter is a psychologist, an author, and a motivational speaker. Even more notably, she is the first female to coach in the NFL, specifically as a linebackers coach for the Arizona Cardinals. In addition to breaking barriers coaching, Welter became the first woman to play running back in a men's professional football league. 

Dr. Welter now uses her expertise on the field to inspire and empower young women through learning the game of football. Your girls will be so motivated by her story of 'Playing Big, Dreaming Bigger, and focusing on the Game Plan'!

Get ready to have fun, play flag football, and get EMPOWERED!
