OIselle Visit! Gals! Mark your Calendar! Saturday, February 17!

The RBO Team is so happy and feels so lucky to get the great support of Oiselle and their BRAS FOR GIRLS Program.  If you missed it last year, Oiselle  has an amazing line of athlete apparel created by and for female athletes of all ages, paces, and places.  Oiselle 's mission is to encourage and help girls stay active and embrace sports as a lifelong pursuit. Through the "Bras for Girls" program," Oiselle will make a very generous donation to our female RBO participants!

RBO will have a special program for 5th to 12th grade girls on Feb.17.  Alisha Brown, a Oiselle sponsored elite athlete,, will visit us on Saturday, February 17th.  This is very exciting! At the beginning of practice, the Oiselle team will present the "Bras for Girls" program and talk with the girls about how to choose a sports bra and understanding our changing bodies.  Alisha will lead a gals-only warm-up and run, followed by a donation of bras and gears! More details will be sent to all interested students.
