ICOACH Kids Partner Meeting

17 Oct 2022
Stephen Walsh

The ICOACHGIRLS partner meeting took place on the 6th and 7th September 2022 in The Sport Ireland National Aquatic Centre, with representatives from all partner organisations (Sport Coaching Europe, Leeds Beckett University, Sport Ireland, Hungarian Coaching Association, Lithuanian Sports University, FIBA, NOC*NSF, and Special Olympics).

The overall aim of the project is to increase female participation in youth sport through two objectives:

  1. Increasing physical activity and sport participation amongst primary school age girls.
  2. Increasing the number, competence and confidence of female coaches.

Dr Ruth Brazier will manage the project on behalf of ICCE Sport Coaching Europe. During the meeting, all work packages were discussed and delivery teams were put in place for all of them. The next meeting will take place in October 2022.

We would like to thank all attending partners and especially Sport Ireland Coaching for hosting.
