Who We Are

Young Women In Sport

Young Women In Sport, a non-profit organization established in 2014 by Mel McLaughlin, advances the lives of women and girls through promoting their involvement in sports and physical activity. Our organization provides opportunities for young female athletes to learn from other women about the value of athletics and to gain an understanding about life lessons that they can learn through sports. We connect. We educate. We inspire. We host programs and events in cities across the country focused on middle school and high school girls, where parents and coaches are also welcome.
