How to Recruit and Retain Girls Onto Your Sports Team & Program

On June 22, 2023 the Positive Coaching Alliance hosted a webinar with Girls Leadership’s Dr. Kendra Carr, and Carolyn Sideco, Certified Athletic Administrator and Consultant, on how to effectively recruit and retain girls onto your sports teams and throughout your programs, especially in under-served areas. The discussion was moderated by Kim Turner, Positive Coaching Alliance Gender Equity Initiative Director.

The webinar took place the day before the anniversary of Title IX and Kim presented that when Title IX passed 20 years ago there were less than 300,000 girls playing sports and today we have over 3 million girls playing sports. With over 4 million boys playing, we still have work to close the gap and get more girls involved.
