Where are the Female Coaches?
Women’s Sports has been experiencing a boom is the past few years, with the AFLW and Women’s Big Bash growing in both professional participation and viewing numbers.
But there is a serious lack of female representation in coaching roles. There are only two women in senior coaching roles and four in supporting roles in the AFLW.
The Daily‘s Sam Baran was joined by Dr Julie Walsh, Senior Lecturer in Sport Coaching at Deakin University, to discuss why we see so few female coaches in Australia. You can find Dr Walsh’s article on the subject, written for The Conversation, here.
