The aim of the National Coach Workshop is to bring together women coaches in Canada to facilitate a stronger network of women coaches in national coaching positions, experience professional development tailored to women coaches, and, create support mechanisms focused on sustaining women in national level positions.

The workshop will be facilitated by Carla Nicholls, the National Event Group Coach for Athletics Canada, and will include presentations by numerous influential women leaders in sport and coaching in Canada.
