2023 WISD Hackathon / Registration
The Women in Sports Data hackathon is a project-based data competition open to women and non-binary individuals with no pre-existing employment in professional sports. The hackathon offers the chance for amateur sports data enthusiasts to tackle real-world problems with guidance from professionals. The top three (3) projects will be invited to Philadelphia to present during the symposium and to compete for cash prizes.

Participants will work on projects over a six-week sprint period. During this time, they must build a *functioning application prototype* OR submit a *data science project or notebook with recommendations* geared towards a front office or coaching staff. Participants must use *player location NBA data provided by Sportradar* to develop their projects. Participants may also use any other publicly available data set to enhance their projects, such as biography data.

Participants must register for the competition as individuals, but may compete either alone or in teams of up to four (4) people. After registering for the hackathon, they will then be invited to join a Slack community, where they can meet fellow contestants and mentors, form teams, and engage in related hackathon programming.
