Women in Sports Week 7th - 13th March 2022

Women in Sport (WIS) week is taking place from March 7th– 13th. The aim of Women in Sport Week is to:

Celebrate every women and girl who plays, coaches, officiates, volunteers, works in and leads out on Women in Sport.
Promote and highlight the ongoing work of Sport Ireland, NGBs, LSPs and other stakeholders and clubs under the topic of Women in Sport.

This year’s Women in Sport is targeting four areas – Active Participation, Coaching and Officiating, Visibility & Leadership and Governance.

Sport Ireland’s vision for women in sport is one where women have an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential, while enjoying a lifelong involvement in sport.

Tipperary Sports Partnership supported by Sports Ireland Coaching will deliver a Coaching Girls in Sport Workshop on Tuesday March 8th 6.30-9.30pm
This workshop has been developed by Sport Ireland Coaching to provide a professional development opportunity for coaches working in the area of sport and physical activity, and is specifically aimed at those coaching girls aged 12 – 17.
This workshop is aimed at coaches working in the area of children and youth sport. Although the workshop have been specifically designed for those working with 12 to 17 year old females, coaches working younger girls may also benefit from attendance. Previous coaching experience is required and candidates must have a foundation level qualification at the very least to attend the course.

4. Raise awareness around the effects maturation and puberty can have on females.
5. Identify the role of actual competence, perceived competence and confidence for engaging girls in sport and physical activity.
6. Examine coaching practices and communication that foster autonomy, confidence, and belonging in girls across team and individual sports.
7. Design environments that cater for relationships, connectedness and competition
