Join WeCOACH at an Upcoming Event

WeCONNECT Women Coaches | Register for a Huddle Today!

WeCONNECT Women Coaches is coach-led & coach-inspired. Join one or more WeCONNECT huddles to engage in powerful peer-to-peer learning, foster meaningful networking connections and be part of an uplifting support group.  WeCONNECT is designed to bring women coaches from diverse backgrounds, sports, and levels together virtually, to empower each other.

Our inaugural year will feature 5 WeCONNECT Women Coaches Huddles:

  1. Timely Issues for College Coaches
  2. Timely Issues for Youth, Club, Middle & High School Coaches
  3. Women of Color Amplified
  4. Moms in Coaching
  5. Inclusive Cultures

WeCONNECT “Co-Captains” will organize and facilitate throughout the academic year. These dedicated peer leaders will guide discussions to create an inclusive safe space for coaches to share openly and tap into the learning experiences and advice from other huddle members.

Participants may join as many WeCONNECT Huddles as you wish— commit the time, engage regularly in meetings and come prepared to contribute to the conversations. Co-Captains determine the frequency of huddle meetings (no more than once per month) based on member availability.

    Register HERE

    This special workshop focuses on the importance and value of coaching styles, building self-awareness, and debriefing your personalized CoachDISC Profile Report results. The CoachDISC Profile is a key component of the WeCOACH Women Coaches Academies, and this workshop provides the unique opportunity to meaningfully focus on the ‘people side’ of your coaching. During the session with Liz Masen, CEO of Athlete Assessments (who has consistently been a highly-rated faculty member at the Academies for over 13 years), you will develop an understanding of how to take the most value from your CoachDISC Profile; understand your Coaching Style, strengths, development areas, and when to adapt; and put it into action to understand your student-athletes and how to coach them in a way that best suits them and the situation. Take advantage of this premier event to focus on the person who will have the most significant impact on your student-athletes and what your team achieves – You! Prior to the workshop, coaches will complete a 12-minute online survey to receive their personalized CoachDISC Profile Report. The detailed, 40-page Report highlights an individual’s coaching style, strengths, potential limiting behaviors, communication preferences, and the environment the coach performs best in. Usually priced at $99.95 each, there is no cost to the coaches attending if within the first 100 registrations. Places are limited, so don’t miss out.
