Our Story

Sisters In Sports is more than a place to meet. It’s a movement. Spouse or partner, active or retired, married, divorced or widowed to someone in sports, this is your community of women connected to the sports world and each other. Few people understand your unique situation, but we do and so do your Sisters. While we’re each on our own journey, we’re also bonded by this unique life—and stronger together.

 

Someone should have done this a long time ago

That’s what Karen Moyer said when she first launched Sis. As the wife of former Major League Baseball All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer, daughter of the legendary Notre Dame basketball coach Digger Phelps and mother of young athletes herself, Karen understood the special needs and issues of women in sports. In the beginning, women sharing this unique life connected by phone and email on their own. Karen envisioned an online resource that would provide a central place to come together, and she called it Spouses in Sports. The Sisterhood was born.

Since then, this amazing network has evolved into Sisters in Sports, an even more inclusive community for women of sports families from players to broadcasters–that takes on real-life issues like concussions, domestic violence and retirement. It provides valuable information to strengthen your relationships and personal well-being, with tools and resources that help make the journey a little easier. Above all, Sis is the place to connect with each other for support and friendship—like nowhere else.

 

The power of together

Inspire and be inspired. Support and be supported. Connect and be connected. That’s the mission of the new Sis. Wherever you are on this unique journey, you are a Sister for life. You can count on your sisters to stand by your side through every phase as we rely on each other’s unbreakable strength.

There are many ways to join us. Online at SIS.LIFE, on social media, at an upcoming event, or by becoming a member. Whatever works for you, we’re excited to have you on this incredible ride, Sis.

OUR MISSION

To connect, inspire and support all sisters in sports.
