Attendees Testimonials

“Having the chance to come together with coaches of differing sports, levels, and experience was refreshing. I often find that while I am coaching, I do not have the time to connect and build rapport with other female coaches. I enjoyed that this event provided that opportunity in a welcoming and insightful setting. I would most definitely attend again!”

Kristen Geist

8th grade girls head XC coach and 8th grade girls assistant track coach at Southview Middle School in Ankeny


“I just wanted to say thank you for being creative with your presentation this year and still having She Coaches! It was such a bright spot in an unknown new world for coaches/teachers. Thank you for going above and beyond to make it special. This year was my first year attending and I will for sure do it again!"

Stephanie Miller
