Coaching Teenage Girls Workshop

Following the release of the Adolescent Girls Get Active Report, Sport Ireland are happy to announce the launch of a Coaching Teenage Girls in Sport Workshop, designed specifically to support coaches of girls aged 12-17 years of age.

Developed by Sport Ireland Coaching in conjunction with the Federation of Irish Sport, the School of Health & Human Performance Dublin City University and Lifes2Good Foundation, the workshop is developed to enable coaches to create a positive experience of sport and physical activity for girls in their formative years and provide an environment where girls and young women can develop holistically.
