Boathouse Sports is proud to announce the new limited-edition Title IX Tailwind unisex hoodie. Part of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title IX is an important law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school or educational program that receives federal funding. Because of this rule, women’s sports in the United States are meant to receive equal monetary funding to men’s athletic programs. Though there are still problems with funding equity, Title IX greatly narrowed the gap. When you see American women dominating in international competitions, Title IX is a big reason why. Of course, you don’t have to make the Olympics to enjoy a level playing field; millions of American girls and women have enjoyed all the benefits of athletics because of this landmark legislation.
As Title IX turns 50 this June, Boathouse Sports wanted to do something special to commemorate this milestone, while also empowering female athletes of the future. With 77% of the Boathouse workforce comprised of women, and our brand’s special attention to women’s collegiate sports, we thought it was only fitting to do something special to celebrate this significant anniversary. In the spirit of all-inclusiveness, our Title IX Tailwind unisex hoodie is a performance garment that men, women, and non-binary folk can wear.
Support a Good Cause With Our New Unisex Hoodies
Whoever you are, if you want an elite performance hoodie and want to support a good cause, the Title IX unisex hoodie is for you. Boathouse Sports is donating 10% of proceeds from the sale of this hoodie to the Women Leaders in College Sports Foundation. This foundation, in conjunction with the Pioli Family Endowed HBCU Scholarship, supports women who are seeking a career in sports leadership. It’s a great way to help ensure that women continue to make strides, not just on the field, court, or track, but in positions that can significantly shape the sports world and help us take those final steps towards true gender equality in athletics.
Performance Hoodies You Can Count On
The limited-edition Title IX Tailwind is more than a collector’s item. Like other Tailwind performance hoodies, it’s premium activewear that’s engineered for fit, durability, and comfort. It features Stretch-Lite fabric for a non-restrictive fit, a warm drawstring hood with a raised neckline, and a scalloped bottom that further aids mobility, especially if you’re a rower. A large front pocket is great for holding small items, and moisture-wicking fabric pulls perspiration away from your skin when the race heats up. Whether you’re training for a regatta against rival schools, or simply going for a jog on a chilly morning, you can count on a Tailwind hoodie to keep you comfortable and reach your top performance level.
