Catch a Vision: Aspiring Women Coaches Workshop

Mission

The data tells the story. We need more women in the coaching profession—in all sports and levels. Through our Aspiring Women Coaches Workshops we will help women Catch a Vision for their coaching career. WeCOACH will be the national leader in actively recruiting more women coaches to build the pipeline of future leaders in sports. These virtual workshops are free and open to any woman aspiring to coach in any sport, at any level. Participants will learn best practices for securing coaching opportunities, networking, and career strategy. If you are a current or soon-to-be-graduating student-athlete, professional athlete soon to retire from your playing career, graduate assistant and/or team manager, etc. who aspires to coach, then Catch a Vision is for you! Together we will MOVE the NUMBERS to support and increase women in coaching!

February 2024| Catch a Vision: Professional Networks: Why They Matter and How To Build Them (Open to members and non-members)
Wednesday, February 21

6:00pm- 7:15pm ET/ 3:00pm-4:15pm PT

One of the biggest issues for women in sport is the minimal or non-existent networking
and support by and for other women (Tucker Center, 2023).

By contrast a report commissioned by Sporting Insights in Feb 2023 to tackle inequality
and hear the voices of women in sports recommends that to thrive women must build an
authentic network of meaningful connections.
This virtual workshop will help you:

• Explore and evaluate your own coaching network(s).
• Clarify the purpose of your network(s).
• Identify the make-up of the people in your current network and those you would
like to be there.

 

Featured Presenters: Sarah McQuade and Julie Muller, e.t.c. consultants.
