Caitlin Clark Addresses Major WNBA Issue Ahead Of Her Debut

Caitlin Clark is still learning and adjusting to life in the WNBA, and one of the biggest differences between college and the pros is the traveling arrangements.

Major programs like Iowa where Clark attended, chartered their flights, whereas WNBA teams often fly commercial. When asked about it at a recent press conference, Clark revealed that the Indiana Fever has a plan in place to ensure safety.

“The Fever organization has done a really good job getting out ahead of things,” Clark said. “There’s gonna be a lot of security traveling with us. There will be certain plans of how we’re going to navigate going through airports and things like that. It’s not just for us; it’s for everybody in the WNBA. Everybody is dealing with the same thing.

The Fever organization has a really great plan in place to keep everybody safe and keep things moving along as we’re traveling. The popularity of our league is continuing to grow … that’s a positive thing, too; you want people to be excited about our game.”

In terms of how she would adjust, the No. 1 overall pick didn’t seem to mind, but may have dropped a hint at what she’d prefer.

“It will definitely be an adjustment,” Clark said of commercial travel. “At this point of my career and across the WNBA, it is what it is. I’m sure everybody would say that they would love to be flying charter all the time. That definitely would help a lot of problems.”

Clark makes her debut on Friday against the Dallas Wings.
