Noontime Sports is proud to unveil the Wheaton College athletics’ You Can Play Project video, which was published on their YouTube channel this afternoon. The video was directed by Noontime Sports’ Matt Noonan, who is an alum.
Noonan worked along side Devon Soucier, a member of the women’s lacrosse team, as well as her teammates and head coach Emily Kiablick.
As noted in the athletic department’s release, “You Can Play’s mission is dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation. You Can Play works to guarantee that athletes are given a fair opportunity to compete, judged by other athletes and fans alike, only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success. You Can Play seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by focusing only on an athlete’s skills, work ethic and competitive spirit.”
Wheaton became the first NEWMAC (New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference) school to join the project, but is one of many institutions from across the country, along with NHL and minor league hockey teams that produced a video.
