BUILD A NATIONAL NETWORK OF SPORTS CAMPUSES FOR WOMEN
PHASE 1: Build public program and classroom spaces, indoor and outdoor training facilities, five (5) practice fields, a soccer stadium, and a Lifelong Health & Wellness Center in central New England.
PHASE 2: Expand to basketball, lacrosse, field hockey, volleyball, fastpitch, rugby, and cross-country to encourage and inspire players of all ages and abilities.
PHASE 3: Build regional campuses across the United States to unleash female athletes everywhere. Sports for Women is a national movement for opportunity, visibility, and equality.
TOGETHER WE CREATE AND PROMOTE ATHLETIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN
We've heard it for years: "The main field is reserved for the men's teams... The weight room is only available at 6am... The boy's team gets the Friday night game... Women's sports aren't interesting to watch..." We've said it to ourselves: "I'm not good enough... I'm too old.... I don't know what I'm doing... Only kids play sports..." It's time we change the world.
The truth is sports bring joy and inspiration at every age, and those feelings don't disappear just because recess ends or the need for work-life balance sets in. Being an athlete makes you strong, confident, healthy, focused, brave, and resilient. Being an athlete makes your life better at any age and at any level. Being an athlete isn't about being the best; it's about being the best version of yourself.
Together, we can improve the lives of athletes we know and love -- our professional role models along with our mothers, sisters, spouses, friends, and daughters. We can create a new world, where women get the support and respect they want and deserve, on and off the field.
