Women Athletes Celebbrating


We are thrilled to have the opportunity to inspire and uplift the next generation of female leaders through the  resources available in the Global Community. Our Virtual Office Hours, Mentoring Program, Book Club, regional/national events and more offer a supportive and inclusive platform for members to connect, learn and grow. We believe in the power of sports to promote education and personal development, and are committed to empowering women in athletic pursuits. Together, we can create positive change in our world. Let’s join forces with our female colleagues to build a welcoming environment that encourages and supports each and every Coach or Athletic Director to reach their full potential. With passion and determination, we can pave the way for women everywhere to become the trailblazers of tomorrow!



As a woman in the world of high school athletics, it can be challenging to find a community that truly understands and supports you. But there is hope!

At GCWHS, we are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming space for all. We believe that every person, regardless of their gender or background, should have access to the resources and connections they need to thrive in their field.

If you are passionate about high school sports and want to connect with like-minded individuals, we invite you to join us. Together, we can break down barriers, support each other’s growth, and make a positive impact on the world of athletics.

National Girls & Women in Sports Day Celebration

Watch our collaboration with NOMAD on our celebration of National Girls & Women in Sports Day.

We offer quarterly zoom calls which we refer to as our “Office Hours”. During this one call we invite special guests to share their stories, wisdom and insight to help us grow as individuals as well as in our profession.

We have made sure that while we are a Global network that you have local connections in your state and region.

The purpose of a mentor is to help you grow as a person and become the best version of yourself. This may involve helping you achieve your personal or career goals, introducing you to new ways of thinking, challenging your limiting assumptions, sharing valuable life lessons, and much more. Our Mentoring program helps women navigate life as a female athletic director. We are currently partnering with Fearless & Capable to provide high quality mentoring for our members.

The Global Community and NOMAD = THE ALLIANCE

The Global Community of Women in High School Sports has connected with NOMAD (National Organization of Minority Athletic Directors). We know there is strength and power in our unity. We collaborate on many opportunities and are very proud of THE ALLIANCE!
