The mission of Women In Tricolour is to increase the level of financial support available to our top performing female varsity student-athletes in the form of Athletic Awards. Supporters of this initiative will be champions, advocates and pioneers offering vital assistance to the next generation of Queen’s women.
When considering the history of university sport in Canada, the women of Queen’s, athletes, coaches, administrators, figure prominently. Queen’s women’s teams where pioneers and amongst the founding members in every women’s OUA and USport sport. Our women have competed in every OUA and USport competition from the very first competitions. Queen’s women have played an influential leadership role in forging the trail for women’s sport in the past and this strong commitment and legacy continues today as our athletes, coaches and administrators continue to Lead The Way, both on the field of play and in outstanding professional careers.
Today, the university's leadership and commitment to equity in participation continues, however our women are falling behind their male counterparts in one important aspect - the funding received towards Athletic Awards for our female student-athletes.
With your help we can ensure that the tradition and legacy of great female student-athletes continues and thrives well into the future.
