·       The hosting and/or support by NSOs, P/TSOs or clubs, to women who wish to become Learning Facilitators and/or Evaluators.
“Women-only” training sessions enable the Learning Facilitator to tackle the specific realities that women face in coaching, and to create a climate of confidence and openness for the women that attend. This initiative is not only about training -- it is also about increasing the number of coaching and leadership opportunities for women at ALL levels of sport.

To be eligible for a We are Coaches grant:
