Female Coaching Webinar on the way
In the last few years, there has been a considerable rise in the number of women getting involved in coaching with the introduction of the Female-Only UEFA B Licence course helping with that.
Now, on June 20th at 11:00 (Irish Time), host Gareth Maher will be joined by FAI Head of Women's Football Sue Ronan, FAI Women's Development Officer Pearl Slattery, and FAI Head of Coach Education Niall O'Regan to discuss the topic in detail on the FAI Coach Education Twitter page.
Ronan played for & managed the Republic of Ireland Women's Senior Team and became one of the first women to earn the UEFA Pro Licence in Ireland, while Slattery holds the UEFA A Licence and has enjoyed a successful career to date - still playing in the Women's National League with Shelbourne.
"The FAI Coach Education Webinars have gotten off to a fantastic start with superb knowledge being shared by our guest speakers so far that will resonate with coaches at all levels of the game. We want to continue with that and touch on every aspect of coaching," said O'Regan.
"The growth of Female Coaching has been encouraging in recent years and we are delighted to have worked closely with UEFA on delivering two rounds of the Female-Only B Licence, but there is still a lot more that we can do to get more women involved in coaching.
"We believe that this Webinar series will help more coaches to improve through the insights that will be provided by the guest speakers and that will be no different with Sue Ronan and Pearl Slattery, who are doing fantastic work in the development of women's football."
