Women in Coaching

Why is it important for Women to coach soccer?
  • The Women and Men's games are (arguably) different, as is female development and perspectives in the game.
  • It is important to have Women's participation at all levels to identify those differences and respond to them appropriately.
  • To provide role models for successful participation and leadership at every level of the game

Female coaches account for just seven percent of licensed soccer coaches (of all levels) worldwide, according to FIFA data from a 2014 survey.

The Gloucester Dragons would like to reflect on the unique connections and relationships Indigenous persons and their ancestors have had with this place for thousands of years.
