UKA Coach Building A Better Coaching Environment

Women in Coaching

BRITISH ATHLETICS Women’s Coaching Advisory Group

The BRITISH ATHLETICS Women in Coaching Advisory Group (WCAG) was established in 2010 and is a representative group of female coaches from across each of the four Home Countries.  Members represent a variety of coaching qualification and experience levels. The aims of the WCAG are to ensure the continued development of female athletic coaches within the wider UK Coach Development system with a particular focus on raising the proportion of female coaches working with athletes in the top 10 UK rankings across U17, U20 and Senior Levels and beyond.  The WCAG vision is to create opportunities to raise the standard, number and profile of female coaches working with athletes at every level.Until last year the WCAG main focus was on delivering the Annual “Women’s Conference” with the aim of raising the profile of female coaches, celebrating success and in turn indirectly increasing female numbers and standards by motivating those attending to strive to achieve more.  Our focus has widened in the last year and we have now successfully completed the first year of our British Athletics Female Coach Legacy Programme (FCLP) and we are now welcoming the second group of females to join the programme.  The primary aim of the FCLP is to support the development of female coaches, providing them with the confidence, knowledge and skills to help develop athletes at the high performance level.
