History

Established in 1992, the Black Women in Sport Foundation, or BWSF, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase the involvement of black women and girls in all aspects of sport, including athletics, coaching and administration. BWSF’s work, however, is not limited to black women and girls. It enrolls girls and boys in the programs conducted throughout the city of Philadelphia and surrounding areas. It facilitates the involvement of women of color in every aspect of sport in the United States and around the world, through the "hands-on" development and management of grass roots level outreach programs.

Since its inception, the Black Women in Sport Foundation (BWSF) has offered educational and athletic instruction to girls, with aparticular focus on those attending schools located in disenfranchised neighborhoods in the Philadelphia area. While the sports of fencing, tennis, lacrosse, field hockey, golf, soccer and softball are areas of specialization, they are not the only sports utilized in our programs.
