In preparation for the 2022 football season, Football NSW is excited to announce the twelve female coaches who have been selected to receive a unique 2021/22 Female Coaching Scholarship.
Designed to provide greater access for female coaches to obtain advanced coaching qualifications, the scholarships provide financial support, access to mentors and ongoing support via the Female Coaches Network.
“After an extensive application process and with an overwhelming number of expressions of interest, we are extremely happy to announce the successful applicants”, Football NSW Technical Director, Warren Grieves stated.
“Coach Development remains a high priority for Football NSW and in particular supporting the growth of female coaches.
“The Scholarship program allows us to support the coaches not just in the formal setting but also within the coaches’ own environments.”
Football NSW’s Head of Women’s and Schools Football Hayley Todd added, “Whilst football tops the list as the participation sport of choice for girls, females are significantly underrepresented as coaches.
“We are excited to be able to support the scholarship recipients as they take the next step in their coaching journey.
“We would like to congratulate the successful applicants and look forward to working with all of them in the new year.”
