CC-LogoCoaches Corner is a new resource for coaches in women’s sports. Created for coaches and athletic administrators working at every level of women and girls sports, it is an online interactive platform providing research, educational and legal resources, news and events as well as policy recommendations and best practices. It also provides the opportunities to participate in webinars, join discussion forums and panels, blog, mentor, activate inclusion campaigns and create a supportive community.

Br{ache the Silence co-founders Nevin Caple and Colleen McCaffrey collaborated with the NCAA, national Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), Women’s Sports Foundation, Equality Coaches Alliance, SHAPE America and fellow sports advocates that include Pat Griffin, Karen Morrison, Sue Rankin, Sherri Murrell, Kirk Walker and Charley Sullivan to create Coaches Corner.

McCaffrey developed the organization’s website based on a collaborative effort with Coaches Corner partners, and was funded in part by grants from Nike, the LGBT Sports Coalition and Arcus Foundation. It is the first of its kind to target coaching professionals in women and girls sports of all sexual orientations and gender identities. According to Griffin, professor emeriti at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, “At a time when the numbers of high school and college women coaches is going down, Coaches Corner is a timely resource for new and veteran women coaches.”
