Welcome to the Official Website of the Women's National Basketball Players Association
The WNBPA was officially formed on November 6, 1998. The Association is comprised of all WNBA players and is governed by an Executive Committee and Player Representatives from each WNBA team. As the first labor union comprised of professional women athletes, the WNBPA enjoys a unique place in the history of professional sports. The WNBPA is committed to protecting the rights of WNBA players and advancing and safeguarding the economic and social welfare of all WNBA players, both on and off the court.
WNBA rookie guard Shoni Schimmel of the Atlanta Dream dominated the SportsBlog.com May Pro Leaderboard and took home first prize for the most readers. That makes two consecutive months of coming out on top.
Schimmel is taking fans along with her on her WNBA rookie year ride and blogging every step of the way. And now she’s making a run for Rookie of the Year. If you aren’t following her blog yet, what are you waiting for?
Congratulations also goes out to NFL Legend Jeff Nixon and NBA Legend Jim McIlvaine, who came in second and third place, respectively, on the May Pro Leaderboard.
With many more pros joining the blogging ranks, June is anybody’s game!
