I SEE YOU.
I HEAR YOU.
YOU'LL BE OKAY.
She Plays is for Athletes.
When I was you, the athlete, I wish I knew I was wasting my time.
Wasting my time trying to prove myself worthy through the awards that sat on my bedroom shelves.
Wasting my time measuring my value based on how I compared to others.
Wasting my time criticizing myself in the mirror, convinced I will never be enough.
I achieved a lot as an athlete. I checked off a lot of goals, and even experienced successes I never knew to dream of. I know now, I have a lot to be proud of.
But what I’m most proud of doesn’t exactly show in a stat sheet.
- overcoming the doubt that held me back and uncovering the joy in why I played
- managing both the internal and external stresses of being a female athlete
- conquering the jealousy that was ruining my potential
- focusing on my own goals and learning what I could control
I don’t want you to struggle as long as I did. No more wasting time. You deserve to play with confidence and joy.

What the Athletes are Saying About Coach D
Lindsey Long > ISU
I loved the atmosphere that Erica created by having us all stand, clap and cheer. The power of celebration inspires belief and confidence!
Annie J. Division 1 > College Gymnast
It was empowering to say the least to hear @sheplaysnow advice on choosing what we allow to give power in our lives. It was a very useful message to hear in the world of women’s NCAA athletics!
