Support Women and Girls in your Coaching and Leadership

Women’s Sport Week is a national awareness week providing an opportunity for everybody involved with playing, delivering, working in, volunteering or watching sport to celebrate, raise awareness and increase the profile of women’s sport across the UK.

Women's Sports Week starts today until the 25th June. Check out the following resources that should help coaches and leaders support more women and girls in their sessions -

  • What Sways Women to Play Sport. Read 'Women in Sport's' Guide exploring the influences to unlock opportunities that have a positive impact on women's sport behaviours.

  • Coaching Women and Girls: Check out UK Coaching's (formally Sports Coach UK) resources area aimed at Women and Girls coaching. 
  • This Girl Can:This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
