Football New South Wales are delighted to be partnering with Women Onside as they deliver our first coaching webinar on Saturday 28th of March.
Women Onside is an Australia-wide network dedicated to making football a place where women can thrive. Women Onside was formed in July 2017 to promote gender equality in football, and specifically to ensure that FIFA’s gender reforms would be adopted in the FFA Constitution in Australia. As a result, the 40/40/20 principle was adopted, a Women’s Council was formed, and the FFA Board now has a 50/50 gender split. Women Onside now comprises a diverse network of women in football and their allies, with interest groups convened in coaching, refereeing, governance, fans and more to come.
They are creating a regular series of workshops to help you and women in football to create personal development opportunities, to help expand your networks and your knowledge of the game.
For this first workshop, our special guest is April Heinrichs.
