President’s Message

Dear Sports Enthusiasts,

Evelyn A. Edney, DWASF Board of Directors PresidentWe welcome you to a great year of honoring the girls and women in sports in the State of Delaware! We are reminded of the importance of maintaining a focus on, and creating an awareness of the important issues facing women and girls in this country and beyond. The powerful combination of sports, health and education found in programs administered by organizations like the National Women’s Sports Foundation not only directly benefits women and girls today, it lays a foundation for growth for generations to come. Women compete at all levels today, in large part due to the foundation laid by Title IX, which has done much to advance the number of women taking part in collegiate athletic programs and has increased access to the classroom. There is still much work to be done to get girls active and for those who are active, to experience equal treatment at all levels of sports. DWASF works for equal opportunity for our daughters to play sports so they too can derive the psychological, physiological and sociological benefits of sports participation. DWASF works to afford females equal opportunity to work and be volunteer leaders in sports organizations and the sports industry. We want you to be a part of the effort. Please join DWASF today!

Sincerely,
Evelyn A. Edney
Board of Directors President
