Women in Coaching Network Event 2023


Athletics Ireland, Cycling Ireland, Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA), Rowing Ireland and Triathlon Ireland have collaborated to host a Women in Coaching Network event, open to all females in sport.

For the second year, female coaches from sport are invited to participate in our networking event which will take place on Saturday 14th of October at the Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin.

Following on from our research conducted with DCU with Dr Aine McNamara and Liam Sweeney, female coaches expressed a desire for a coaching network and coaching mentorships to facilitate further coach development. As a result, the Women in Coaching Network event was established.  

Over the last five years our NGB's have built a community with hundreds of women across sport, all who enjoy connecting in a more intimate and welcoming environment. Therefore, if you are a female coach in sport, then join us at this year’s Coaching Network Event, where we will be sharing knowledge, experience & best practice from world class coaches & leaders!


World class speakers and coaches to be announced shortly..

The cost of the event is €20, and tea, coffee, snacks and lunch are all included.
