Our Mission

The KNOCKOUT TIMES champions female athletes. We celebrate competition and being active. We highlight challenges females face with respect to pay, sponsorship, media coverage, representation, body image perception, among so many others.   

By championing athletes, celebrating competition and bringing issues to light, we hope to ramp up and accelerate the change that is underway for women in sports specifically but also women generally. 

Get on board. Tell us your story.  Don't have a story? Go out out and create one and invite us along to help you document the journey!
