Rowing Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA), Athletics Ireland
and Triathlon Ireland have collaborated to host a Women in Coaching Network event, open
to all females in sport.

For the second year, female coaches from sport are invited to participate in our networking
event which will take place on Saturday 14 th of October at the Clayton Hotel, Liffey
Valley, Dublin.
Following on from our research conducted with DCU with Dr Aine McNamara and Liam
Sweeney, female coaches expressed a desire for a coaching network and coaching
mentorships to facilitate further coach development. As a result, the Women in Coaching
Network event was established.
Over the last five years our NGB’s have built a community with hundreds of women across
sport, all who enjoy connecting in a more intimate and welcoming environment. Therefore, if
you are a female coach in sport, then join us at this year’s Coaching Network Event, where
we will be sharing knowledge, experience & best practice from world class coaches &
