​Women in Sport Coaching & Mentoring Programme 2020

​Women in Sport Coaching & Mentoring Programme 2020

The Women in Sport (WIS) Coaching & Mentoring Programme was launched by Swim Ireland in 2018, funded by Sport Ireland. The aim of the programme is to address the lack of female coaching across Irish aquatics. Since its launch, 44 candidates have completed coaching qualifications (level 1 and 2).  

For the upcoming year, we have identified several coaching courses across Ireland, where WIS spaces will be available. Each course involves a blend of online training and classroom / pool elements. Spaces are distributed via an application process, with successful candidates receiving a discounted course fee, along with mentoring opportunities post course.
