About

I conceived of this page as a place to discuss women’s sports. Not just the games and the athletes, but the legal and social issues around sports in the U.S., especially my home state of Arizona. I currently contribute to azdesertswarm.com, the SB Nation site for the University of Arizona, with a focus on the women who represent the Wildcats. However, not everything I write is suitable for such a site.

This site follows girls and women who play sports at all levels. Youth, recreational, high school,  community college, major university. What does it take to be a great female athlete? Why do they play? What challenges do they face? Are the answers to these questions different for women than they are for men?

In addition to the athletes, the site seeks to explore the world of female coaches. In many sports, women are largely absent in their own sports. Men coach. Men administer. Why? How can that be changed?
