Five Saint Mary’s University coaches were recently panelists in a classroom discussion on gender in sports. The coaches shared their experiences from youth and college as student athletes. They also shared their views on coaching women’s sports. Topics covered during the discussion included Title IX, approaches to communication, professional opportunities for female coaches, workload issues, advice for those going into coaching, and pay equity. The panel was part of Associate Professor Dean Beckman’s Sport Communication class, a freshman Anchor Course in the new Integrated General Education Program.
