Armour for Your Sports Girl? No Way!

The driving force behind Dragonwing girlgear's creation was a frustration over the lack of quality performance athletic wear for girls. Girls shouldn't have to shop in the boys' department or search the racks for XS women's clothes. ArmourChillWeight That's why we've created a line of performance wear designed for teen and pre-teen (or tween, if you prefer!) girls. No wedgies. No straps that slip or bras that ride up when you pull down a rebound. Everything designed for an athletic girl, so she can concentrate on playing the sports she loves.

Cool Weather Athletic Clothing for Girls

We must be having fun because time is flying! Fall arrived this week and that means cooler temperatures, especially in the afternoon and evening. It's time to add a thermal base layer, so girls stay warm, dry, and comfortable when playing sports. Our Chill Weight sports leggings and long-sleeve fitted tops make the perfect cool weather layer for athletic girls. Girls stay warm and dry and can play without distraction -- no shivering, no bunching or drooping leggings, no tugging at tops that ride up in back. Wear them alone, under uniforms or skirts, or under cold-weather sports gear (great for skiing, too!). Dragonwing Chill Weight: sports leggings, capris, fitted tops for girls CHILL WEIGHT FABRIC is PERFORMANCE QUALITY - sweat-wicking, four-way stretch with super soft, brushed inner layer - fabric made from recycled PET bottles - antimicrobial, odor resistant LONG SLEEVE FITTED TOP - thumbhole keeps wrists covered - patent-pending face wipe on wrist keeps her face (and nose) dry - longer length won't ride up - wider, not-too-tight neck LEGGINGS (REGULAR AND CAPRI LENGTH) - great worn alone or under shorts - 15" capri length won't interfere with shin guards Reviews: girls capri sports leggings tights: "my new favorite pants" Madi "from the first second I put the capris on, I could feel a difference."

Corie Barry: From Rugby Field to CEO - Dragonwing Girl

Corie Barry: From Rugby Field to CEO

There's no arguing the fitness benefits for girls playing sports -- but does it really increase their likelihood of success later in life? Athletics teach values that go far beyond the court or field: cooperation, determination, discipline, and how to succeed under pressure. 

As more women enter the C-Suite, it's notable how many laid the foundation for their success playing competitive sports early in life.

Corie Barry spent much of her career with Best Buy, having served as Chief Financial Officer before being named CEO. Before that, she played college rugby and considered a career in dance. For her, an impressive title and resume must include her husband and two kids, youth baseball games, gymnastics with her daughter, and active time spent together with her family. 

"My point of view is there is no perfect balance," says Barry. "All you can do is figure out what works for you. I laugh because I'm always the mom who shows up at the baseball game in my heels, and that's OK."

Whether it's business or sports, Barry has advice we can all use. "I've always felt it's important to demand a return on your investment. If you're going to put your time in, where you put it in and the return you get is incredibly important because there are only so many hours in a day."

Corie's is an inspiring success story for athletic girls in every sport.
