A Message From Our Founder
Leading by Example..
At the tender age of five, I was swimming competitively for the Worthington Valley Dolphins. At the time, there were not many little girls swimming so I had to race to boys! I’m sure this gave me the competitive edge that still resonates in everything that I do.....

About Sporty Girls, Inc.
A Profile of Excellence...
In 2006, local radio personality Rashan Ali founded Sporty Girls Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia to provide young minority girls the opportunity to participate in non traditional sports – those not traditionally offered in metro Atlanta public schools. A life-long competitive swimmer and recipient of a four-year swimming scholarship at Florida A & M University, Rashan knew that one day she would want that same opportunity for other girls like her. Not only did she want young girls to swim, but also learn to play, soccer, golf and tennis. Through Sporty Girls she has been afforded the opportunity to introduce young minority girls to an unconventional way to participate in non-traditional sports. Since 2007, Sporty Girls, Inc. has served over 65 girls from the metro Atlanta area.
The benefits of participating in Sporty Girls program are numerous. SGI will expose the girls to sports not traditionally offered in metro-Atlanta public schools. On a very basic level, participants in Camp Elite will benefit physically by being active during the camp duration. Since each girl will also be eligible for a year-long scholarship, the likelihood for continued physical activity for each girl throughout the year is increased. It is our hope to decrease obesity among young girls and increase their knowledge in making healthier lifestyle decisions.
