Women Coaches Symposium 2020
The 7th annual Women Coaches Symposium will take place on Friday, April 24, 2020 at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota Campus. The WCS provides high-quality educational programming, networking, professional development and community building for 350+ women coaches, administrators, students, and those who support women coaches, at all levels of competition and all sports.
In the seven years we have hosted the Women Coaches Symposium (WCS) we have encountered many amazing women! We know of many exemplar women coaches at all levels of sport who are committed to "doing it right" and we want to honor them.
We know that some coaches and coaching practices are detrimental to the health of female athletes. Read this story titled, Toxic sport cultures are damaging female athletes’ health, but we can do better.
To address and to educate coaches, at the WCS 2020 we have invited a panel of health professionals from the TRIA Women's Sport Medicine Clinic to discuss many of the issues raised in the above article.
On April 24, 2020 we will come together as a constellation of sport coaches.
Constellations are small patterns within a bigger system.
Constellations are roadmaps for a movement, and show the way by providing points of light to let others know they are not alone.
Support the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, the first and worldwide leading research center of its kind.
