Young Women in Leadership Programme


Information on the 2024 Young Women in Leadership Programme

Rowing Ireland, in collaboration Move2Be, Triathlon Ireland, and Cycling Ireland are offering a leadership programme to empower young female athletes aged 17-21, focusing on leadership development. The programme itself is a six-week programme that will run from mid September to October with one workshop each week, lasting 1h30. The objectives of the leadership programme are as follows:

  • Develop leadership experience: Focusing on sound judgement, interpersonal and organisational skills that contribute to the overall success of an event/organisation/team.
  • Expand insight, vision and strategic thinking: Developing the ability to identify and articulate challenges within sport, develop ideas and strategies to overcome them.
  • Foster motivation and inspiration: Expanding intrinsic motivation to achieve the best not only for themselves but for their teammates and club, fostering a positive and supportive environment.
  • Improve communication: Growing the skills to effectively communicate ideas, instructions and feedback to peers, teammates, club members and coaches.  

The programme will focus on practical takeaways and real-life examples. This course is for athletes of levels with an interest in leadership and we encourage all those who think they might be interested to apply by completing this application form
