The Northeast Ohio Women's Sports Alliance exists at the intersection of sports, community, social justice and real world factors impacting today's women. We expand awareness for community-based sports in Northeast Ohio and offer supportive services for athletes, teams, coaches and staff. All of our services are offered at no-cost.

The future is NOWSA

our philosophy

We were founded on the belief that women are stronger together and develop important life skills and relationships through sport. Participation should not have to end after high school or college graduation, so whether you want to be an athlete, coach, or volunteer, NOWSA strives to empower women to pursue the athletic route of their choosing and give them the tools to achieve it.
