Women's Coaching Month supported by BHP

Established in 2020 and proudly supported by BHP, Women’s Coaching Month shines a light on the pathway programs and initiatives aimed at encouraging more women and girls to take up coaching from grassroots through to the elite level.

Now in its fourth year, the theme for 2024 focusses on ‘Accessibility for All’ and strives to highlight the plethora of transferable skills women possess that could make coaching an ideal career pathway – across any level or league.


The Coach Your Way Rookie Program has been developed to provide women and girls the opportunity to develop knowledge, learn tools and be supported to confidently step into coaching. 

It's all about coaching your way, and not about fitting into the mould of a 'traditional coach'.
