This factsheet is one of a series, produced by sports coach UK and the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation (WSFF), aimed at coaches who coach women or who are interested in coaching them in the future. Each factsheet provides insight into the female athlete and her needs, and guidance as to how better to coach and support her.
Although the information contained within this factsheet has been academically evidenced, sports coach UK recognises that it is a generalisation. All people are individuals and it is for you, the coach, to contextualise the following information to your own coaching environment.
This factsheet aims to provide some of the evidence on differences in how men and women think to allow you to develop your coaching style and bring out that extra potential in the women you are coaching.
