About Our Programs

        Her Next Play programs inspire female athletes to make bold career plans, build resilience and confidence, and develop critical career skills. Through innovative programs, we help female athletes build their professional brand, develop their support network, and confidently navigate their transition from sport to career. 

        Her Next Play works with female student-athletes at the middle school, high school, and college level. All programs are developed and delivered through the lens of sport, leadership, and applying the transferable skills learned through athletics to careers.

Girls and Sport Leadership Events

Her Next Play partners with schools and community sports organizations to create events for middle and high school athletes. These events give girls the opportunity to hear from sports leaders, and also reflect on the skills they are learning through sports to inspire them to keep playing, and developing as leaders.

SEE US Movement Workshop

SEE US is a program that spreads awareness about female athletes being underrepresented, sexualized, and judged on appearance rather than ability. Her Next Play partners with schools, clubs, and teams to discuss these issues. For more information about SEE US, follow the link https://seeusmovement.weebly.com/
