Guides to Coaching Women and Girls
Sport is still dominated by men - both as coaches and participants of all ages. sports coach UK and Women In Sport (formerly WSFF) have joined forces once again to bring the findings of a new research project to you. The project involved interviewing over 40 women, involved in sports participation in an informal setting, for their views on what they want and need from a good informal sports session.
The research project engaged with 3 recreational/informal sports programmes:
- England Badminton - No Strings Badminton programme
- The FA - Just Play
- England Athletics - Run England
This information will inform and hopefully develop some of your thoughts/existing programmes into making them more female friendly and inclusive for women. The project has produced 5 factsheets (see box to the right).
The research report and a video, containing thoughts from female participants about what makes their informal sessions great can be found by accessing the Women In Sport website here.
