Girls+ Skate 613 provides a safe space for individuals to skate in a comfortable, encouraging environment. This program facilitates opportunities for those who may feel excluded in what is commonly a male-dominated scene.

Since its inception as Girls Only Sessions at McNabb in 2006, GS613 has hosted people of all ages and abilities, many starting off as beginners who have progressed into skating daily. After its first year in 2006 with a few dedicated staff at McNabb and volunteers, the Girls Only Sessions went on hiatus. 

After realizing the need for opportunities for girls and women to skate, the sessions were started up again in summer 2013 and had a significant response from the community. Each year since, the attendees have doubled and our local skate community has expanded.
