Calling all women who want to leave their curling irons behind and partake in the athletic ice event of curling, a favorite event at the last Winter Olympics.
In her pursuit to try every sport once in her lifetime, Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, Founder of the Women's Athletic Network and Women TIES, LCC along with at least 7 other regional women will learn how to Curl and then compete in a game against each other (we need 8 participants total). She has found women who participate in these athletic or adventure sports, bond and network in stronger ways which helps grow business and personal "ties."
The Women's Athletic Network and Women TIES "Curling Our Way Towards New Dynamic Bonds" will take place on Saturday, October 22nd from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Utica Curling Club, 8300 Clark Mills Rd, Whitesboro, NY 13492. At this cool experience women entrepreneurs will work on celebrating team dynamics, how to manage people, and test their skills on the ice, all while having fun. It is a two-hour ice adventure only made for the warm, yet icy-hearted and shrewd, women entrepreneurs.
The event includes the 2-hour instruction, beverages and snacks, an unforgettable experience networking with new regional women in business, and possibly a lunch afterwards at a restaurant close by (we will all determine this after the event is over if we want to network even more). All participants must provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19 to the Utica Curling Club.
The Monday following the event, as you go to curl your hair for your next business outing, you might think of curling differently, have new team skills, and the business cards of new women you met in your pink pocketbook.
NOTE: We are looking for a "cool" sponsor for this program so let us know if you are "game" to have us promote your name before, during and after the event to our vast marketing platform. Call or email the office for more details.

Calling Women: Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham Presents - Trying Every Sport Once in Your Lifetime Invitation
Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, Founder and President of Women TIES, LLC and the Women's Athletic Network, who lost all her hair to alopecia in 2018, has come out of the experience realizing she is most comfortable without wearing a wig and participating in sports, fitness or outdoor activities daily. Her new lifetime goal is to try every sport - regular and hopefully adventure - once in her lifetime. She will be documenting her attempts via social media especially on her TikTok account @tracychigginbotham.
As the year progresses, Tracy will post the sports she is attempting and invite any woman to join her at it. Most will be a one day experience most likely without training. There will be promotion of the women who join her and their companies so her love for marketing women entrepreneurs continues in a different way.
Out of the 124 "regular" sports, Tracy has done 55 of them with 69 more to try including ones like motorcross, curling, archery, parasailing, surfing, and more.
When it comes to "adventure" sports, there are 39 with Tracy only doing 4 so she has 35 more to go. Some of the "fun" ones include mountain biking, unicycle, kite surfing, bullriding, and more. She is keeping ski diving to last just in case! Any ones who has participated in a adventure sport who wants to take Tracy back out with them, should reach out to her!
Let's make 2022 and onward, an undaunted way of living life through sports especially since we are women and women entrepreneurs who are undaunted by adventure.
Make a "reservation" (without payment) including your name, business names, phone, email, etc. and in the comment section a sport you want to try or take Tracy out to do and she'll get you booked in her schedule.
SHE CAN'T WAIT to experience this with other women and document it to inspire other women to keep living an undaunted life of thrills, sports, and the outdoors.
About the Presenter
Born and raised by parents who were coaches and physical education teachers, Tracy started her young life at the age of 5 downhill skiing, swimming, ballet, and fishing. She moved on to swimming on with boys on the Jr. Swim Team because there wasn't a budget for girls swimming that year. Her and her 3 teammates had a few records.
In 1996, Tracy took up running to lose weight after her second son was born. She ran 2 miles every day for 15 years; and after meeting Kathrine Switzer, Founder of 261Fearless.org, trained for the 2017 Boston Marathon which she completed with great joy. Ever since the experience, it has made Tracy want to do more athletic feats and goals.
In 2013, Tracy created the Women's Athletic Network, to bring women entrepreneurs together to participate in sporting events, fitness, and cheering on female athletes for networking, exercise, and fun. The WAN has created opportunities for women to white water raft, zip line, kayak, try a high ropes course, and run in a few 5Ks. She also promotes and supports girls in sports.
Tracy believes strongly in supporting women in business, sports, equality and life.
The Women's Athletic Network, is a division of Women TIES, created in 2013 that promotes athletic events for women entrepreneurs to participate in, train for or support as spectators.
Be part of the next Women's Athletic Network event! We are looking for women interested in creating and participating events in sports or adventures to bring women together, to be advocates for women's issues in sports, and other future ideas for the division.
