The mission of WeCOACH is to MOVE the NUMBERS
of women in coaching, in all sports & all levels.

Prior to Title IX in 1972, over 90% of women’s collegiate sports teams were coached by women.

Over 50 years later, for all three NCAA divisions, that number has decreased to 41% women head coaches of women’s teams. This means only 4 out of 10 NCAA women’s teams are coached by women. And women head coaches lead only 24% of the 20,255 total NCAA men’s & women’s teams.

Only 6% women head coaches lead NCAA men’s teams. Out of 9,291 total NCAA men’s teams head coaching opportunities, only 574 are led by women.

Women of Color head coaches lead 7% of NCAA women’s teams and only 1% of NCAA men’s teams. Out of 20,255 total head coaching opportunities for NCAA men’s & women’s teams, only 890 are led by Women of Color.

At the youth level, only 26% of youth sports head coaches were women in 2022, up slightly from 24% in 2019.
