If Not For Them

Social media is filled with images of  women’s basketball players showcasing their athletic prowess, along with their off-court ventures. NBA players are celebrating the success of their female counterparts while sponsors and sports fans are more interested than ever. Women athletes are using their platforms to become influencers, build their careers and battle for social justice while college women’s basketball coaches are commanding multi-million dollar contracts. 

But, it hasn’t always been this way.

So, we’re working on a documentary series to share the story of how the foundation was built for college women’s basketball. It’s the story of the forgotten women who changed the world through the love of their sport. More information is coming soon on how to get involved.

Available to speak to your group

Summer 2018

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great summer! I’m enjoying my college basketball off-season with a little work for my friends at Pelofsky & Associates, plus speaking engagements and private basketball lessons. I also completed my first IRONMAN 70.3 through an incredible experience in Madison, Wisconsin. The training, competing and finishing made up an incredible journey that is sure to be part of my story in future speeches.

I’m looking forward to the 2018-19 school year and broadcasting volleyball, basketball and softball games again. If you need a speaker or an emcee for an event, please feel free to email me at bvanlengen@yahoo.com. I’m based in Kansas City, but can travel.

2019 Basketball Camps

This summer, I will not be offering any pre-arranged basketball camps.

However, if you have a team, or just a group of kids, we can work together on a customized camp for your group.

In addition, I provide private lessons for girls and boys, customized to an individual’s needs and goals. Contact me for information on detailed information, rates and availability.
