Women in Coaching

Women represent an untapped resource throughout the sport community. While female athletes constitute as much as 50 percent (and sometimes more) of the members of national teams, the percentage of women who coach at that level is dramatically lower. Women have different life and leadership experiences, values, and attitudes which equip them with valuable sport expertise and perspective.

Women in Coaching is a national campaign to increase the number of coaching opportunities for women, at all levels of sport. Directed by the CAC, the program enjoys the support of many individuals and organizations committed to improving the coaching environment for women in sport.
