Women and Girls

Coach Alberta recognizes there is an underrepresentation of girls in all aspects of sport and leadership.

  • There is a 10% chance a girl will be physically active as an adult, if they do not participate in sport by the age of 10
  • Only 16% of women report sport participation
  • Women occupy only 17% of the head coaching roles at the Canadian university level

To close these gaps, Coach Alberta is determined to achieve equity and inclusiveness for women in sport. This is accomplished by providing information on how to enact change in the sporting community.

To determine whether your organization is gender equitable

  1.  Take the CAAWS Gender Equitable Toolkit
  2.  Adopt a Gender Equitable Policy
  3.  Advocate for Gender Equity
