Hi! We're Ashley Hart, Stephanie Lane and Joy Crook. And we're three best friends from college. We met at Wake Forest University back in 2005 - YIKES feeling old and GO DEACS! - and we have been best friends since.
We've studied together, worked together, played together, and lived together - on campus and in South America!
And now we're launching She Plays together.
But this story is not about us.
It's about equality and empowerment, leading to better opportunities for the next generation. It's about lifting up women, recognizing excellence regardless of gender and ultimately inspiring kids today to believe they can achieve their dreams.
Find out more about our story below.
One of the biggest problems we're aiming to tackle is unequal sports media coverage. Here's a visual breakdown for you...
We believe that offering fantasy sports for professional women's leagues is going to drive engagement and contribute to more equal display in the media. Today's female athletes deserve the recognition and tomorrow's girls deserve to see athlete role models that look like them.
That's why we're launching She Plays. So what exactly is it, you ask?
She Plays is the first ever fantasy sports app/website offering exclusively professional women's leagues. There will be 3 options to play. We're kicking off with a Bracket Challenge - the 2019 World Cup!
Getting excited? We are too! Here's a sneak preview of how it will work come June.
First things first! You'll find the app or go to the site and register as a user.
Next, you'll do some research and choose which teams you think will advance in the World Cup. You'll even choose the team you think will take it all and win the title! Ahhhh is it June yet?
Now it's time for the real fun to begin - time to watch and win! The World Cup kicks off June 7 and runs for a full month, so whether it's over a lunch break, out with friends for a beer, or from the comfort of your couch - every game affects your bracket! And every game puts you one step closer to that prize :) Yes, there's a cash prize.
Get a head start and listen to our review of the 2019 World Cup on our podcast.
Okay, so we're ready for June. How do we get there?
Here's our upcoming timeline to launch She Plays and then roll out other leagues in the fall.
We have big dreams, but we don't want to do this alone. Would you join us?
By backing us on Kickstarter today, you're helping us finish the website/app development so that we can launch and test in May in time for the 2019 World Cup! It's a huge help.
You're also becoming part of a community that's creating something new in the world - this is the first fantasy site exclusively for women's leagues. And we truly believe it's going to impact the sports world for generations to come.
We're so excited to have you on our team! Thank you for your support.
