In 1972, the year Title IX became law, approximately 90% of all women’s sports programs were headed by female coaches. Since then, interest in women’s athletics has exploded— with more girls and women participating in more sports than ever before. And yet, today, we're confronted with a deeply disturbing fact: The number of women who are coaching women's teams has declined by over half since 1972.
The Academy for Sport Leadership (TASL) is a Michigan-based nonprofit organization dedicated to reversing that trend by encouraging and training the next generation of professional female coaches. Through our Future Coaches Camp, Athletic Administration Internships and the TASL Alumnae Network, we inspire and educate young women—and prepare them for leadership positions in the world of women’s sports.
