Applications Open: Women’s Coaching Pathway Programme.

Applications are now open for the 2022 Women’s Coaching Pathway Programme.

This is an exciting initiative for coaches and aspiring coaches. The programme gives participants the opportunity to improve their knowledge, expand their network and develop leadership and coaching skills in a supported, collaborative environment alongside coaches from IABA, Athletics Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Rowing Ireland and Triathlon Ireland.

In 2020, four NGBs partnered together to devise a supportive programme for Women in Coaching. The first year of the programme saw 25 female coaches from Rowing, Triathlon, Cycling and Boxing receive support in personal and professional development, mentorship, coach education and hands-on experience. The programme was successful in progressing coaches along the pathway and participants reported increased confidence, understanding of their coaching style and feeling part of a support network. The programme continued in 2021.

What’s Involved?

Six coaches per sport will be selected to receive the following supports as part of the programme:

  • Personal Development Coaching Workshops with Jo Hopkins Consulting
  • Access to Coach Education
  • A trained Mentor
  • Multi-sport networking opportunities
  • Support from their respective NGB’s Women in Sport Officers, including IABA’s Women in Sport Lead, Louise McKenzie,

The IABA, Triathlon Ireland, Rowing Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Athletics Ireland all recognise the need to see more women in lead coaching positions in their sport and want to support coaches along that pathway.
