Join the love that Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies have for Barbie with their curiosity about all of the things they can do.  Earn the I Can Be… patch with online games, a printable activity guide, and a paper doll Barbie with a great selection of outfits related to career options.

Girls’ Tennis—USTA Kids’ Clubs

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas and USTA have partnered together to offer a Girls’ Tennis program for Girl Scouts!  The program is primarily for Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors, and teaches teamwork, agility, healthy choices, and good sportsmanship while having a swinging good time learning tennis! 

Training for the Girls’ Team volunteers is free and provided by USTA trainers.  A tennis reference and a Girl Scout Tennis Series curriculum are provided to all trained tennis volunteers.  To find out if there is a Girls’ Tennis team registered in your area, contact your nearest service center (see page 3) or the Program Executive at your local Girl Scout office.

Tau Gamma Sigma

Tau Gamma Sigma (TGS) is a girl-led program for middle and high school girls that lets girls decide what topics they want to address.  TGS is a leadership development program that gives girls tools to make wise decisions when facing challenging issues in their lives.  From fashion to dating violence, the issues that are important to girls are up for discussion, and girls develop skills to make good decisions for themselves.
