No matter if your new or interested in coaching or an experienced coach, we are here to support you on your coaching journey!
Active Surrey, Active Sussex, Bucks and Milton Keynes Sports Partnership (LEAP), Get Berkshire Active, Kent Sport, Oxfordshire Sport Partnership and Sport Hampshire & IOW (SHIOW) have worked in partnership to develop the project – which has so far been endorsed by England Netball, England Handball, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Exercise, Movement and Dance Partnership. sports coach UK are our first national sponsor and will be providing lots of tangible support to our coaches through the project.
The project was launched on International Women’s Day (8 March 2013) in recognition of the increasingly powerful role that women have played and continue to play in society across the globe. It is hoped that National Governing Bodies of sport will link their programmes to the project to develop a workforce which better reflects the demographics of our local communities who want to engage in sport and physical activity and in turn jump-start the creation of a Women’s Coaching Network in the UK.
Despite the success of women at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the need to engage more women and girls in sporting endeavours has never been so crucial. Increased interest in female sport by the BBC and Sky alongside initiatives like Project 500 will help to create a new platform for women and girls to enjoy and excel in sport as recreational players, coaches, elite athletes and leaders.
