Hey, Moms: Make a Difference as a Coach

As a parent, you may know how hard it can be to find coaches for youth sports throughout the year. What you may not know though, is that currently, men make up 78% of youth coaches. Where are all the women coaches? Kids—and especially young girls—can benefit from the representation of female leaders in their lives. Women are needed on the field on game day—and all the days in between too.

 

With that in mind, and in honor of National Girls and Women in Sports day, the Center for Leadership in Athletics at the University of Washington is hosting a FREE intro to coaching workshop for women—and particularly, moms—Saturday, Feb 3 at the UW. 

Whether you have a few years coaching experience and want to brush up on your skills and get inspired or if you’ve never coached before and want to learn more about coaching, this training is designed for you.

 

We are Game Changers: A Workshop to Prepare Women to Coach Youth Sports will explore personal strengths and challenges relative to leadership and coaching, help you develop an action plan for coaching and host a unique Coach 101 training. There will also be a panel of women who have coached youth sports and young athletes speaking about the impact female coached had on them.

 

Oftentimes, moms and women already have the skills and knowledge to support positive development. Go share it with the kids out there!
