This series provides an opportunity to meet other coaches, reflect on your own practice and engage in topics to support coach development.
Sport Ireland Women in Coaching Research found that access to a network was an important development tool for female coaches. Of 2000+ female coaches surveyed:
- 86% of active female coaches who did not have a coaching network would like to join one
- 58% of female coaches would like to observe other coaches in their sport
- Female coaches felt not being part of a coaching network hampered their opportunities for advancement.
