Fast Track for Female Coaches

Published Mon 26 Jun 2023

In Australia, we are experiencing a rapid rise in the profile of women's sport and female athletes, however women are still under represented in leadership and coaching roles. One of the most considerable and visible discrepancies between “women's sport” and “women in sport” is the lack of women in coaching roles. At the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the International Olympic Committee reported that just 13% of coaches at the delayed Games were women, despite women making up 49% of competitors. Similarly, when professional Australian team sports are examined, there is a dearth of women in coaching roles, for either women's or men's teams.

Fast Track for Female Coaches aims to connect aspiring female coaches, provide exclusive insight and further develop their coaching and leadership behaviours and competencies - building capability and readiness as they fast track through the coaching talent pathway.

The course is for any aspiring NSW based female coaches who:

  • Wants to develop skills beyond the technical and tactical
