WOMEN’S COACHING ALLIANCE TEAMS UP WITH DIGITAL COMMUNITY PLATFORM VOICEINSPORT TO KEEP GIRLS IN THE GAME

On April 25th, Women’s Coaching Alliance and VOICEINSPORT (VIS) have announced a new community partnership aimed at keeping girls in sport and developing the pipeline of young women coaches in the sports industry.

NEW YORK, April 25th, 2024  –  On April 25th, Women’s Coaching Alliance and VOICEINSPORT (VIS) have announced a new community partnership aimed at keeping girls in sport and developing the pipeline of young women coaches in the sports industry. VIS, a woman-founded digital platform providing mentorship, content & mental health services, and Women’s Coaching Alliance, a non-profit organization on a mission to develop women leaders through coaching youth sports, are committed to building the future starting with the youth.

“I love that the WCA is focused on developing young women in coaching by engaging with their passion and leadership skills while they are still athletes themselves.” said Founder and CEO of VOICEINSPORT, Stef Strack. “It’s so critical that we build a pipeline of women coaches so that we begin to create a more diverse sports ecosystem. I’m proud to announce a new community partner with the Women's Coaching Alliance that will help arm so many young coaches with resources and services that will help educate and inspire their involvement in sport both on and off the field.”

In this partnership the VOICEINSPORT platform will unlock mentoring services and free educational content to all the coaches and athletes in the Women’s Coaching Alliance community with a focus on the San Francisco Bay Area. 

The services will include access to free mentoring thanks to the VOICEINSPORT x WNBA Changemaker partnership announced in February 7th, where 16 WNBA players currently serving as VIS Mentors will continue mentoring on the VIS platform, including Ariel Atkins (Washington Mystics), Aliyah Boston (Indiana Fever), Alysha Clark (Las Vegas Aces), Natasha Cloud (Phoenix Mercury), Izzy Harrison (Chicago Sky),  Lexie Hull (Indiana Fever), Betnijah Laney-Hamilton (New York Liberty), Haley Jones (Atlanta Dream), Nneka Ogwumike (Seattle Storm), Satou Sabally (Dallas Wings), Katie Lou Samuelson (Indiana Fever), Erica Wheeler (Indiana Fever), Zia Cooke (LA Sparks), Kayla McBride (Minnesota Lynx), Brionna Jones (Connecticut Sun), and Brianna Turner (Chicago Sky).

Launching this month, the VOICEINSPORT platform will provide access to services for thousands of girls in sport through the support of the coaches in the Women’s Coaching Alliance network. Since its launch in 2019, the VIS mission of bringing more visibility to women athletes and elevating their voices has been central to building out the platform’s services with over 300+ professional athlete VIS Mentors and 95+ VIS Experts in Sport Psychology, Nutrition, and Women’s Health. 

Women’s Coaching Alliance is the second of a select group of community partners that will be announced over the next few months that will benefit from the VOICEINSPORT partnership with the WNBA. Women’s Coaching Alliance member coaches will sign up their teams at VOICEINSPORT and unlock professional athlete mentoring and educational content for young girls and women athletes. Throughout the year, the VIS platform and the 16 WNBA player VIS Mentors will conduct over 144 Live VIS Virtual Mentoring Sessions for athletes in the Women’s Coaching Alliance community sponsored by the WNBA Changemakers. 

“WCA coaches are young women and future leaders who are often both playing sports and coaching younger kids. WCA coaches have two adult mentors guiding them throughout their coaching experience. The addition of mentoring support from professional athletes along with the many other VOICEINSPORT assets provides them with important voices, perspectives, and tools to support them during both their journey as athletes and as coaches, as they encourage the girls they coach to stay in sports,” said Pam Baker, Women’s Coaching Alliance CEO.
