Lead Thru Sport is a not-for-profit organization created to provide girls and women with an opportunity to participate in sport*, apply essential leadership skills outside of sport, and connect with each other in the process. We strive to develop character, identify passions, and build each other up.
As young, grassroots, female coaches in a male-dominated sport community, we have always been determined to make a difference and build a culture of female leaders. We see the benefit of developing our own skills through participating in sports, so we are inspired to use sport as a vehicle to have an overall impact on youth. We also see a gap in education and intention, as well as a lack of focus on social responsibility in youth programs of today. As a result, we have developed well-researched and diverse programs that are delivered to and by both youth and adults.
We have also experienced first hand, our voices not being heard around the table. To break down these barriers, we are committed to elevating the voices of not just women, but women of various intersectional identities. We are a platform for women to share stories, elevate diverse perspectives and celebrate each other.
Lead Thru Sport is committed to empowering girls and women by using sport as a vehicle to provide meaningful and intentional learning experiences for personal growth.
Be a positive influence both in your own life and other people’s lives every day.
Overcome internal barriers, step up to challenges, and gain confidence.
As girls and women, treat both ourselves and others with respect and support one another.
