2019 WCS Partners, Sponsors and Vendors

We are grateful to national, regional, and community partners, sponsors and vendors who support women coaches. See details for becoming involved below.

Event Host Partners

The WCS is hosted by the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport in collaboration with the WeCOACH, and the University of Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletics.co sponsor

 

 

 

Philanthropic Partner

The SportsBra ProjectOur Philanthropic Partner again for 2019 is The SportsBra Project! For some girls and women, lack of access to a sports bra—due to logistical, cultural or financial factors—can be a barrier to sport participation. Utilizing networks of female coaches and athletes to collect and distribute sports bras, The Sports Bra Project is striving to eliminate one barrier to increase the likelihood of sports participation for all girls and women. WCS attendees are invited to bring a new sports bra, and in return will get additional raffle tickets which can be applied to win amazing prizes and in turn will make a difference in the lives of girls. A drop-off station will be available on site. Twitter: @SportsBraProjec
