The Women’s Sports Foundation today kicked off its collaboration with USA Today High School Sports to celebrate March’s Girls Sports Month. Throughout the month, we will share the stories of renowned and inspiring female athletes, as they discuss their views on topics such as leadership, mentoring, perseverance and the important role athletics has played in their lives.
Both WSF and USA Today High School Sports strongly believe that participation in sports helps to mold our future leaders — leaders in their sports, leaders in their families, in their schools, at their jobs, and in their communities. So many women athletes have blazed new trails and shined a spotlight on how being physically active can have a profound impact on the life of a woman or girl. This month is dedicated to recognizing those athletes.

You will have access to a variety of Q&As with top female athletes and video diaries from elite college athletes and sports legends.
