ABOUT The espnW Retreat

The espnW Retreat. This two-day retreat will help set the female sports agenda. We’ll begin cultivating a sports conversation for women, highlighting the important role of sports in shaping their lives.

There are precious few places that recognize and cheer for women who achieve great things in sports. Even fewer that directly aim to inspire improvement and greater future achievement – and that can offer up the tools, tips, advice, role models, event experiences and that priceless spark of inspiration to make it happen. espnW celebrates female athletes – because we are athletes. Whether that means competing in an Olympic arena, in a high school gym, or in a 5K against your neighbor, we carry the athlete gene in our DNA. As we like to say, “Once an athlete, always an athlete. And once an athlete, always a fan.” We are champions of a female sports culture. We are passionate about cultivating a national sports conversation for women. We will celebrate the athlete icons of today who inspire girls and women to do great things, and we’ll introduce you to the next generation of sports heroes. We will show girls how to channel their love of sports into the skills and opportunities that will make them strong, successful, confident women. We will motivate women to never rest until they’ve achieved their personal best. In short, we’ve dreamed up a whole new world for female athletes and fans, and it’s by women, for women.

In our case, we are pleased to have clients Gretchen Bleiler, Jessica Mendoza & Maddy Schaffrick participate as panelists during the event. Our girls Jamie Anderson, Joanna Zeiger, Lauren Perkins, Grete Eliassen will also be in attendance.

And to top is off, we are thrilled to have Ashley Koff Approved provide all the wonderful nutritious snacks (Pure Bar included) for the event as well as ALEX Bottle for stylish hydration purposes!

Way to go team!
