While there has been an explosion of women participating in athletics since Title IX, only about 40% of them are coached by women. "Game On: Women Can Coach" explores the supporting research, dispels false narratives and celebrates female coaching pioneers. This film marks the third collaboration between tptMN and the Tucker Center.

The film features championship women coaches at every level, youth, high school, NCAA, national and professional including USWNT Soccer Coach Jill Ellis and WNBA MN Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve. Their stories are the stories of all women coaches who face barriers in the occupational landscape of the coaching profession to do what they are passionate about and who desire to make a difference in and through sport.
