Our Story

Excelle Sports was created by lifelong competitive athletes and passionate sports fans. When the initial idea of “covering women’s sports” came up, we assumed there were already many sites doing that, but were stunned to find that there are very few. We realized that we could be the first ones to cover a wide range of women’s sports year round, not just during the Olympics, World Cup or major tournaments. Thousands of amazing athletes are training, competing and making history throughout the year, and their stories are endless and amazing.

Officially launched in February 2016, Excelle Sports offers news, features, profiles, interviews, video, scores and rankings, post-college leagues, and a curated marketplace. The editorial team at Excelle – industry veterans, former college and Olympic athletes, and other sports-obsessed journalists – report the news and tell the stories of the individual stars, rising talents, teams, coaches, and icons across a broad range of sports.

We created Excelle for the athletes and coaches who live in the vast, passionate world that is women’s sports – junior, high school, college, post-college, pro and Olympic – as well as for the legions of women’s sports fans around the world.

Welcome to the future of women’s sports.
