Female Coaches Community

Development and networking for female coaches

In Spring 2022, BBFA launched the Female Coaches Community. The was introduced to support female coaches within the County to continue development and importantly network and share experiences with other female coaches in the area.

The group of female coaches will be supported throughout by FA Regional Coach Development Officer for Women & Girls, Vicky Fisher along with support from FA Mentors Jon Simmons & Chris Berry. The team will support the delivery of both practical and virtual workshops. 

In its first 12 months since launching, over 100 female Coaches are part of the programme with the group continuing to grow and evolve & it is perfect for both new coaches into the game or experienced coaches.
