Why more women coaches are needed:
Female head coaches comprise 42% of head coaches of women’s collegiate teams at NCAA Division I institutions. (That means approximately 6 out of 10 women’s teams are coached by men!)
In research released by the Aspen Institute Project Play only 24% of youth sports coaches were women in 2019, down from 28% five years earlier.
Women of color make up only 16% of Division I head coaches of collegiate women’s teams.
