Celebrating National Girls & Women in Sports Day with Julie Foudy

Today marks the 33rd annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day, a national observance celebrating the extraordinary achievements of
women and girls in sports.

On this day, we're sharing our most popular Julie Foudy resource to recognize Julie's impact on women in sports. In this resource, Julie shares how she welcomed new players to her team "like members of her family."


We're also excited to honor Julie Foudy alongside Brandi Chastain and Mia Hamm with the Lifetime Achievement Award at our own National Youth Sports Awards & Benefit on April 27, 2019.
