Twin Cities Soccer Leagues is proud to partner with and support Tucker Center for Girls & Women in Sport and its Women Coaches Symposium, established in 2014, providing high-quality educational programming and professional development for women coaches.

When: April 20, 2018
Where: TCF Bank Stadium
Registration: Here

The WCS is a collaboration between the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, the Alliance of Women Coaches, and the University of Minnesota Athletics.

The purpose of the Women Coaches Symposium is: 

  • to provide high quality educational programming
  • to provide an avenue for networking for women in the coaching profession
  • to build community among female coaches
  • to recruit, retain and support women in the coaching profession

New for 2018, TCSL in collaboration with the Tucker Center as well as WISE (We Impact Soccer Excellence), will offer a FREE soccer-specific on-and-off field workshop on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium, the home for Minnesota Gopher soccer, for female coaches.

YOU are invited to attend a grassroots initiative of coaches supporting and educating women coaches – parent, youth, high school and collegiate. Our three-hour session is designed around four areas of coaching development: Leadership, Coaching in the Game, Coaching in Practice and Injury Preventions/Sports Performance. Come and connect, be a part of this great community, find a mentor and participate in engaging conversation.

​Invite other women you know who influence others through the game of soccer! All are welcome. Let’s continue impacting our leaders of tomorrow together!

The underrepresentation of women at every level of sport reinforces the notion that sport is a male domain. Girls—and boys—deserve more female leaders in sport.

The stats are staggering.
