Colgate-Palmolive Company launched the first official Colgate Women’s Games in 1974, with 5,000 young women from the New York area participating in the initial series. Today, thousands of registrants from all over the East Coast compete. Preliminary meets and one semi-final competition determine finalists who compete for trophies and educational grants-in-aid at the Finals.

All young women are eligible to participate in all preliminary meets. School-age girls, grade 1 and above, must be enrolled in and attending school to participate. Participation is free!

Track and Field is a fundamental, entry-level sport with broad appeal for its tremendous health and mental-wellness benefits.  It builds confidence and teaches discipline and perseverance.  No expensive equipment is needed.
