Project 500: First-year Report

Mon, 07 Jul 2014

Seven County Sport Partnerships in the South East, with support from sports coach UK, launched a bold two-year programme on International Women's Day in 2013 to engage more women in coaching.

The project - which is endorsed by a range of governing bodies of sport including the Rugby Football Union, The Football Association and the England and Wales Cricket Board - aims to:

  • increase the number of active female coaches
  • increase the number of females accessing high-quality coaching
  • create an ethos of self-improvement through learning and mentoring 
  • create local and national networks for like-minded female coaches to share ideas, practice and experiences.

We have recently completed an evaluation of the first full year. You can read the results of the evaluation by clicking the link to the right of this page.

Key achievements from the first year include 264 female coaches being supported so far, across 37 different sports. The coaches supported say they have developed themselves in all areas and significantly in terms of their technical//tactical abilities and confidence to coach.
