Female Coaches in Ireland
The data on coaching numbers across Ireland is an approximate figure. Databases with coaching numbers tend to contain every coach ever accredited , rather than active coaches. However, using what we can from statistics provided by National Governing Bodies and surveys such as the Irish Sports Monitor, we know that there are fewer female coaches in sport than male coaches. As the coaching levels increase, the percentage of female coaches decreases. Hence the reason coaching is a key target area under the Women in Sport Policy.
