The Power of Title IX


"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
--Title IX of the Education Amendment, 1972 


It is amazing to think that on June 23rd, Title IX celebrated its 40th anniversary!   This writer was all of the age of 5 when Title IX passed.  At the time, I had no idea how much of a impact playing sports would have in my own life, resulting in many "life learning" experiences.  Having a 14 year old daughter, I have watch her "up her game" from the confidence and friendships she built through playing sports which she has carrys forth into her everyday life.    As women, I can't imagine what it would be like without Title IX.  If you haven't already done so, take a moment to reflect on how Title IX has impacted you.  :-)
Happy Anniversary Title IX

New England Cup



It was a blistering hot day on the front nine with a slight wind on the back nine when the two Boston team went head to head with with five other teams from New England area.  After the final scores were tallied, Boston Team B came in second, just a half a point from first place!  Team A was not far behind, they were only a half point out of third.  It was a day when every stroke and putt counted.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and the Springfield Chapter has volunteered to host the event in 2013.
