Our CEO Sarah Wolfer has been featured on the “Woman Wednesday” series by My Lilianas. In this article, Sarah discusses the role that sports played in her life and how sports can benefit girls from all walks of life. Sarah also discusses her passions for women supporting women and leadership and how those passions are impacting the work of Girl Boss Sports.
Here is a sneak peek:
“One of the things I hope you learn from my story is the power that sports can have on anyone and everyone. Being involved with sports provides so many opportunities to teach life lessons and find success on AND off the field. Whether you are someone who has never played before or thinking about getting back into it, just do it! There are a ton of recreational leagues and teams and classes around the nation that could be a great outlet for you and I highly recommend it. And if you are someone with children (or know somebody who has children) I’d encourage you to get them involved in (and help them stay in) sports. If you have girls, it’s even better that you’re reading this. By age 14, girls are 1.5 to 2 times more likely to drop out of sports, and this is incredibly sad to hear. This is due to a ton of reasons including lack of access, costs associated with participation in sports, and lack of positive female role models. These are all things that Girl Boss Sports is working to change.”
