Women Make Coaching
Women Make Coaching is all about supporting women who want
to improve a person’s experience in sport or physical activity.
Women Make Coaching is organised by County Sport
Partnerships in the West Midlands who will provide tailored support based on
your needs and aspirations.
We are working together across the region to celebrate and
raise the profile of women in sport and physical activity.
Women Make Coaching is here to help you if you want to get
started, develop or connect with other women in the community.

Reach, a new campaign focussing on women in coaching has been officially launched by sports coach UK on 20th October.
Reach has been created to raise awareness and inspire more women to get into coaching as well as encourage current women coaches to develop their skills further.
Targeting women of all ages and backgrounds Reach reinforces the messages that coaching keeps you active, can be a sociable activity and is a way of giving back to your community and sport. All this whilst being a role model to encourage others into sport.
The campaign has been created because women are currently under-represented in coaching. Research has shown that women do want to coach, providing the environment is right. However, sport is still regarded as a gendered activity which strongly favours men.
By creating greater diversity in coaching, Reach will begin to address this and participants will benefit from having a choice as to who they are coached by.
Women Make Coaching and Reach will be working in partnership over the coming months, 'Reach into Women Make Coaching' news to follow soon.
Join the campaign, find information and tips on how you can get involved by visiting www.reachintocoaching.co.uk.
