Matildas news: women’s Coaching, Australian football

Published

on

“THERE’S no better coach to have than a female coach that’s grown up playing.”

Women’s football in Australia is growing at an impressive rate on the back of the success of the Matildas, but one crucial element of the game is still a major work in progress.

While participation rates skyrocket, and exposure for our current crop of female stars is at an all-time high, the coaching side of the game remains dominated by men. Football as a code prides itself on the integral role the game is playing in the fight for gender equality, and those at the top have targeted coaching as an area where things stand to improve.

Across the nation, there are just over 40 females who boast the credentials needed to coach at a semi-professional level or above (possessing a Pro, A or B licence) – an alarming number considering there are hundreds of thousands of females playing the game in Australia.
