In the 40+ years after the passage of Title IX, female sport participation is at an all-time high but the percentage of women coaching women at the collegiate level has declined from 90+% in 1974 to a near all-time low today of 40%. In addition, though the number of collegiate coaching opportunities is also at a record high, only 20% of all college coaching positions for women's or men's teams are filled by women. To help stop the decline of and increase the percentage of women in the coaching profession, and to increase awareness and start a national dialogue on this issue, the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport commemorates its 20th anniversary in collaboration with the Alliance of Women Coaches by launching a cutting edge research series and report card aimed at increasing the number of women in the coaching profession.
