I'm a former WNBA champion, Division-1 collegiate Kodak All-American, First-Team All-American, Big Twelve Player of the Year, Two-Time Hall-of-Famer and WMLBA Championship coach who has played and won many games in my life. I've lived out my dreams and passions of being a professional athlete. Now, I'm living out another dream and passion of mine, which is motivating and inspiring today's youth through motivational speaking, after-school programs, mentorship programs and sports performance coaching and training. I’ve always had the desire for uplifting our youth because our children are the leaders of our future, however, they desperately have a need for positive words of encouragement, they have a need for strength, hope, discipline, self-love, and self-respect. All of these qualities to replace bullying, teen suicides, teen depression, anger, and hate.
As a former high school teacher and coach with an innate ability for building solid, foundational and meaningful relationships with my students; I want to use my platform as a professional athlete to better the lives of our children by teaching them compassion, leadership, teamwork and support for themselves and each other. Now let’s face it, ...Kids LOVE pro athletes, they emulate pro athletes, they LISTEN to pro athletes and I would love the opportunity as a professional athlete, to use my voice to share with your students the keys to transforming their lives; and to share my stories of success from very humble beginnings.
I am a champion. I’ve ALWAYS been a champion! Now, I am a champion building champions in the game of life. I want our future generation to live happier, healthier, meaningful lives and I want them to build happier, healthier, meaningful relationships. I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to share my story, but I’m especially thrilled to see how excited your students are going to get about playing in the game of life AND playing to WIN...; after hearing what I have to say!

Alicia began playing competitive basketball at the age of 9. She was a starter and all-star player on her 7th and 8th grade Middle School teams which both went undefeated.
Alicia participated in track and field where she went on to become a 4-time shot put state champion, and 1-time discus state champion: earning her a full basketball and track scholarship to Texas Tech University. Thompson, who was recruited by hundreds of schools across the nation for both basketball and track, chose Tech a year after they won the Women’s Final Four National Championship.
She was the recipient of many MVP awards in high school, being voted the best female basketball player in West Texas her senior year. She went on to become one of Texas Tech’s most awarded players being named a Kodak All- American, Texas Tech Hall of Famer (2008) and Big Twelve Player of the Year in 1998.Thompson was inducted into
the 2017 SouthWest Conference Hall of Fame, and currently holds the number two spot as Tech’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder; only behind Carolyn Thompson. Alicia represented Texas Tech by playing on the U.S. Junior National Olympic Team which brought home the Silver Medal in 1996.
Thompson was a first-round draft pick (9th Overall) of the 1998 WNBA Draft; being selected by the New York Liberty. She played for two other WNBA teams; the Indiana Fever and Seattle Storm, where she won a WNBA championship in 2004. She retired from the league a year
later. Alicia also played professional basketball internationally in Spain, Israel, Sicily, Naples, and Istanbul Turkey.
In its first year of existence, Thompson, as the Head Basketball Coach and Director of Operations, led the WMLBA’s (Women’s Minor League Basketball Association) Dallas Lightning to the 2017 Championship.
After a 5-year career in high school teaching and coaching, Thompson enjoys sports performance coaching, basketball training, and public speaking. She was this year’s NCAA and Big Twelve Women’s Final Four Ambassador, being the voice for women’s basketball; giving her the opportunity to inspire youth of all races, ages, and genders. Alicia thanks her mom for the part she played in her successes in life; saying her mother never let her quit, and always told her to
believe in herself. Thompson says her mom was her hero. “I love motivating today’s youth,” Thompson said. “I want our future generation to live happier, healthier, meaningful lives, and to build happier, healthier, meaningful relationships.”
