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 at the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, at the University of Minnesota have developed an award and criteria that honors these women. This award is presented by Jostens.
