Her Time To Play

The Women's Basketball Coaches Association is proud to be a national partner of Her Time To Play, a grassroots initiative created by the WNBA and NBA to inspire the next generation of girls, ages 7-14, to play basketball in a positive and healthy way.

The program's free curriculum, co-created with the Women's Sports Foundation, pairs on-court training with off-court life skills lessons to build girls' confidence, prepare them for the challenges of adolescene and teach values like teamwork.
