Tucker Center's LaVoi featured in MPR story on lack of female coaches

Nicole LaVoiNicole LaVoi, Tucker Center Associate Director and Lecturer in the School of Kinesiology, is featured in a Minnesota Public Radio story on the lack of female coaches for boys' high school teams. An analysis of 2008 data by the Tucker Center found 63 women coach boys' sports teams in Minnesota—that's 2% of the 2,865 boys' teams. The majority of those women coached boys' swimming or tennis.
