They may not be household names, but the three women coaches who share their stories in this article embody the many compelling reasons why Canada’s sport community must evolve into a more welcoming environment for this and the next generation of women who give so much of themselves to their athletes, to their sports, and to their communities. 

From their earliest experiences as aspiring athletes to the excellent coaches they are today, Janet Goddard, Miranda Kamal, and Savanna Smith are disarmingly open about their life journeys and the challenges they faced and overcame. Journal readers will be able to relate to and learn from these three remarkable women, who truly reflect why women can and should coach. – Sheila Robertson, Journal Editor
