Registration Open: Female Coach Networking Conference.

Women coaches across five sports, including boxing, are being invited to the inaugural Female Coach Networking Conference.

This unprecedented networking opportunity is a collaboration between the Irish Athletic Boxing Association, Athletics Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Rowing Ireland and Triathlon Ireland.

The Female Coach Networking Conference was born after the NBG collective listened to overwhelming feedback from participants in our Women in Sport Coaching Pathway Programme. These women coaches wanted a chance to meet, to develop new relationships with counterparts across sport, learn from one another’s experience and share coaching expertise.

Two keynote speakers will headline a pack schedule at the Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin on November 6th -FIFA High Performance Consultant and Strategy Specialist, Lisa Fallon, who is also the Chair of Paralympics Ireland; she’ll be joined by Dr Phil Kearney, Lecturer in Skill Acquisition, Coaching and Performance at University of Limerick. Dr. Kearney is delivering an address on layering the 4 Cs -Competence, Confidence, Connection and Character into coaching for optimal athlete development”
