The sports story that the commentators used as a lead highlights the growth and success of women in sports.
“The 2015 summer season has been the season of the woman athlete. From the U.S. Women’s National Team winning the World Cup and Serena Williams winning her sixth Wimbledon title, putting her one step closer to a calendar grand slam and tied for the most wins in the history — to Becky Hammon becoming the first female head coach to win the NBA summer league in Las Vegas.”
Sports commentator Scott Daniels focused on female sports that are growing in Clark County and expanding in local sports leagues. A Level Playing Field was mentioned as an example of local foundations who are doing their best to help support female sports in Clark County.
Girls in Clark County and the rest of Nevada schools are playing all sorts of sports and the number of female Concussions in high school sports is growing every year! The problem is that they do not have any protective gear to protect their heads. A Level Playing Field is focusing its attention to this serious alarm bell.
A Level Playing Field is sponsoring a scientific research project that is conducting a variety of tests which will authenticate the value of protecting youths’ heads by wearing lightweight padded helmets.
“We will continue to perform extensive research in order to validate the enhanced safety of wearing padded helmets. “ Susan T Spencer, Founder and CEO of A Level Playing Field Foundation.
