This Girl Can Coach
According to Sport England's Active People Survey 2 million fewer women than men regularly play sport but 13 million women would like to take part in more sport - over 6 million of these women are not currently active. Perceptions of coaching research by sports coach UK has found that 35% of women who currently play no sport at all say a female coach would encourage them to play more sport.
In North Yorkshire, Active People shows that 183,700 (53.3%) females would like to do more sport and 99,200 (28.8%) of females that are currently inactive would like to more. These statistics, coupled with the fact that male leaders and coaches can put women off getting or staying active (Go Where Women Are) show the need for more women to become involved in coaching.
