“I can not tell you how much this summit touched my daughter… and that was just reflecting today! I can’t imagine the reflection she will have in the coming school year as she starts to apply what she’s heard. Even I as a parents learned i have to allow my daughter to make decisions so she can flourish in this world. We look forward to coming back next year! THANK YOU SO MUCH! ”


“Wow, where do I start. This is a movement. My girls could not stop talking about this the whole ride home. They took something from every speakers story and related it to their own life. I personally learned a lot about the female athlete process and how I can be a better coach. To focus more on developing my athletes instead of wins.”


“I walked in there thinking all I would listen and learn about was basketball and man I was wrong !! I took life with me … truly opened my heart and mind to a vision bigger than I could imagine my self reaching for … to see women whom are successful , yet have truly strong stories .. but still then did not let anything stop them .. truly just made me step back and self evaluate myself ..I learned that life is all about what you make it ..setting a foundation for yourself whether that’s environment or self care . everything matters .. also to be present not just simply committed..wow just everything. Thank you because I will always remember this day !!”

We are here for the person, not just the athlete!
