On June 10, 2021, representatives* from the NFCA met with members from the Kaplan Hecker law firm as part of their comprehensive and thorough review of gender equity issues in connection with the NCAA, with a primary focus on NCAA championships and specifically, the Women's College World Series. Many topics and statistics were presented, including but not limited to post-season roster sizes, scheduling, overall student-athlete experience, and sponsorship opportunities. The final Kaplan Hecker report and recommendations will be released later this summer. As always, we will keep you informed throughout the process. The NFCA will do whatever we can to promote gender equity. It is TIME for change.
