VOICEINSPORT, which serves as a safe platform where young girls can access mentorship from pro athletes, clinical and non clinical sessions with sport psychologists and nutritionists and content written specifically for them and their needs. But VOICEINSPORT is doing more than offering services to girls on their platform. Girls that join the VOICEINSPORT community have the opportunity to join the VIS Advocate Program - a leadership program for girls in High School and College where they learn about Title IX, evaluate their school and identify 3 things to positively change.
WHOOP is a personalized digital fitness and health coach that tracks key physiological metrics and provides detailed, actionable feedback to optimize performance via a monthly membership.

The WHOOP x VOICEINSPORT band is a symbol of an ongoing partnership between these organizations to provide girls with knowledge on how to understand their body better through training, recovery, and sleep. Chronic sleep deprivation has been correlated with a 68% greater risk of sport-related injury, while longer time spent asleep and longer time spent in REM/SWS sleep are both positively correlated with next-day performance, both cognitive and physical.
