Sportswomen of Colorado

Welcome to Our Team!

Back in 1975, Sportswomen of Colorado made history as the first organization in the country to honor the achievements of female athletes on a statewide level.

Celebration Banquet

Today, our annual Awards Celebration Banquet continues to promote and honor girls and women in sport with the biggest and arguably the most inspirational women’s sports recognition event in the state. We honor an average of forty athletes, coaches and contributors each year, including Olympians like Mikaela Shiffrin, Missy Franklin, and Dorothy Hamill, high school and college all-stars, and even great-grandmothers!


Your award nominations are welcome year-around. The annual deadline is December 31.

Sports Camps and Clinics

We empower the next generation by funding a girls sports camp scholarship program as well as pairing collegiate women’s sports teams with local elementary schools to conduct sports clinics.
